Hailed as one of the world’s great romantic piano virtuosos, André Laplante has been compared with piano legends, Ashkenazy and Horowitz. Laplante has won innumerable international prizes and performs regularly in major concert halls around the world. An Officer of the Order of Canada, Laplante is one of our country’s musical treasures as a performer, recording artist and teacher. Laplante’s visit to High River includes both a concert and a masterclass (open to the public) with some of Alberta’s finest young pianists. We are honoured and thrilled to welcome one of Canada’s iconic pianists to High River!
