BRAVO! Television featured pianist Derek Yaple-Schobert as “one of the best of the next generation of classical musicians”. He won National prizes, received Canada Council grants, recorded two CDs, performed recitals in prestigious halls to schools and rural homes in seven countries and he holds a Doctorate in Piano Performance. Often praised by the press for his musical sensitivity and sincerity, he is also known for his easy and entertaining way of speaking with any audience, proving Derek to be an ideal classical piano ambassador.
Nuanced with his engaging commentary & demonstrations at the piano, Derek plays music that inspired him to pursue a career in piano, from greatest hits to knuckle-busting, awe-inspiring pieces. This is a show that will enthral even those who think they “don’t usually like classical music” and concludes with a fun and lively “Audience Talk Back”.
