Adam Repa is a graduate in music from the University of York. He started playing the piano at 7 years old in Warsaw (his birthplace) and his debut performance was at the age of 10 at Chopin’s birthplace, Żelazowa Wola. He is a talented and aspiring performer, having played in charity concerts, university lunchtime recitals, performances for the Chopin Society in London (of which he is a member) and for the elderly. At the age of 17, Adam was the soloist for the first movement from Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 with his school's senior orchestra at West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge. He has won two music competitions in England: Cambridge Competitive Music Festival, 2011, and Mrs Sunderland Festival, 2015, at the Huddersfield Town Hall. As well as performing, Adam has recorded contemporary compositions, playing background jazz music at corporate events. Adam has been taught under Joanna Kocik, Siu Chui Li, Gareth Owen, Joan Dixon, Martin Roscoe and Andrzej Jasiński. This is an exciting opportunity to see Adam before he starts a 2-year master’s degree this September in piano performance at the Royal Academy of Music under Professor Sulamita Aronovsky, founder and artistic controller of the London International Piano Competition. As well as the piano, he plays the organ on Sundays at three different churches in London including Christ Church.
