Calvin Abdiel: 2022 Tour
The Sydney is thrilled to present Calvin Abdiel’s Debut Tour, providing a unique opportunity for audiences in Canberra on Sunday 3rd April to enjoy this prodigious young artist on the cusp of a glistening career.
Calvin Abdiel is the winner of the 2021 George Frederick Boyle Third Prize of the internationally renowned Sydney International Piano Competition (The Sydney). The first Australian to reach the grand finale of the competition in almost 20 years, Calvin astounded audiences, who tuned in virtually across Australia and the world, in July 2021.
The youngest competitor of the 2021 competition at just 20 years old and competing against 31 other international musicians, Calvin won through the stages of the competition with expertise and skill beyond his years.
The international jury also awarded Calvin Abdiel with the Nancy Weir Best Australian Pianist prize and the prize of an overseas scholarship for an Australian competitor to further their musical career.
Two rich and illustrious programs will feature during Calvin Abdiel’s tour, including Enrique Granados, Liszt, Mozart, Schumann, Haydn and Ravel.
