Charles Richard-Hamelin plays Music in the Afternoon May 4 in his first solo Toronto recital. “I’m looking forward to my proper Toronto recital debut,” he said in a recent note to past president and Career Development Award chair Annette Sanger.
Annette presented Charles with first prize in April 2015 when he won the Career Development Award 10th Anniversary competition in Walter Hall.
That same year he went on to win silver in the International Fryderyk Chopin Competition in Warsaw and the Krystian Zimerman award for the best sonata at the competition.
