123 piano battle
We’ll be organising something quite unique at the Stadshal: children between the ages of eight and fifteen will be giving of their best in the exciting 123 piano battle. ‘Cruisin’ Sioen, pianist John Gevaert and the hip Klara presenter Sander De Keere will be on hand to offer their support and crown one lucky youngster as the 123 piano virtuoso!
“OdeGand has an ear for young talent. The 123 piano battle is a way of bringing them more into the public eye!” explains Veerle Simoens, organiser of OdeGand. “Children between the ages of eight and fifteen who play piano are given carte blanche under the Stadshal. We shall select 20 children from amongst all those who have signed up beforehand. They’ll be playing their hearts out and they are free to choose whatever genre they wish, whether a classical piece or a contemporary pop or rock tune."
