Gifted pianist to light up the library

Lauded as a ‘talent to watch’, pianist Michael Ierace has been described as ‘revelatory’ and is highly sought after, having impressed audiences in Australia and the UK, including two performances at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Born and raised in Adelaide, Mr Ierace was awarded the prestigious Elder Overseas Scholarship after experiencing success in local and national competitions, which enabled him to study at the Royal College of Music in London under Professor Andrew Ball.

His international accolades include an RCM Rising Star and the Hopkinson Silver medal in the RCM’s Chappell Competition, and several UK competition wins including Keyboard and Accompanist prizes in the Royal Over-Seas League Competition.

Mr Ierace is currently a staff pianist at the Elder Conservatorium. His concert will feature eight characteristic piano pieces by Quentin Grant (Zirkusvolk) together with several Lyric pieces by Edvard Grieg and Gaspad de la Nuit, by Maurice Ravel.
