“This has been a hard year for artists. Our art and our livelihood depend on close collaboration and live audiences. At a time when many events were simply cancelled, I am so grateful that Weatherford College found a way to continue with the WC International Piano Competition.

The day before Houston and Rice University shut down in the spring, I was able to rent an electric piano for my apartment at the last minute - the piano store locked their door for 6 months right after I walked out! I began to learn the repertoire for the upcoming recital on this instrument and had lessons with my professor, Dr. Robert Roux, over Zoom from my living room. Rice University has been open again for the fall semester, but with very strict protocols in place. I must say it has been really nice to play on a grand piano again, even if I do have to wear a mask the entire time!

It is important for us artists to continue making music no matter what is going on in the world, and to always find new ways to share our art. Weatherford College and I have worked together to record and stream my upcoming recital, which will include works by Beethoven, Chopin, Scriabin, and Liszt, along with a few words from me about the program. This music is very dear to me and I am so happy to be able to share it with you!”

– Anna Yukho (1st Place Winner of the 2020 WCIPC)
