The third annual UCF Piano “Day” is a two-day event with a guest piano recital and a masterclass designed for Central Florida’s classical piano students, teachers, and enthusiasts.
Due to popular demand, Canadian pianist André Laplante is returning to UCF as a featured guest artist for the event. Over the last decade, Laplante has firmly established himself as one of the great romantic virtuosos. He garnered international attention after winning prizes at the Geneva and Sydney International Piano Competitions, then capturing the silver medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Critics have compared him with Ashkenazy, Horowitz, and Rudolph Serkin, placing him in the elite circle of virtuoso pianists who do not hesitate to take risks.
