I couldn't be more happy for my student Daniel Szefer, who became a Winner of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra 2018 Concerto Competition after performing F. Chopin's Piano Concerto in F Minor Op. 21 yesterday evening (March 13, 2018) with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Professor Edmond Agopian at the Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall at the University of Calgary.

Congratulations Daniel! You have made me proud of you yesterday! I wish you all the best and more successes like this!

Thank you, everyone, who helped Daniel, who helped us, who helped me!

I congratulate Sua Kwoun, Cameron Wong, and Daniel Dastoor! You were all magnificent!
(I had a pleasure of working with Daniel Dastoor and Cameron Wong as their chamber groups' coach so I was cheering them up as well!)
