London Mozart Players and KIPC revive The Mozart Memorial Prize

On Friday 1st November 2019 Concerto Prize winner Jinah Shim performed Mozart Piano Concerto K. 467 in a delightful all-Mozart programme with the fabulous London Mozart Players conducted by Howard Shelley at

Tonbridge School. It was a memorable occasion in front of a large and appreciative audience.

Why attend?

If you are a keen pianist of any standard wishing to share learning, informal and formal performances, small group classes and a festival, then you will enjoy the courses.


If you are a conservatoire student there are opportunities to win recital and concerto prizes, as well as take part in masterclasses with leading pianists.
