Avan Yu, winner of the 2012 Sydney International Piano Competition, will perform an exclusive recital in Melbourne on 26 July at Camberwell Grammar School.

One of Canada’s most exciting young pianists, Yu won his first national piano competition, the Canadian Music Competition, at the age of 13. Four years later, Yu became the youngest competitor ever to win the Canadian Chopin Competition. In 2012, he won the Sydney International Piano Competition as well as taking home nine additional awards.
