Students warming up and performing at Tenri Cultural Institute, March 3, 2013. Paintings by Sunhee Kim Jung, currently on exhibition in the gallery, form a backdrop to the recital. Sixteen young pianists, pupils of Leschetizky Association members, were selected to perform, and all in attendance agreed it was one of the best Awards Concerts we have had.
