We are thrilled to share that UBC Music Student Hamilton Lau (BMus 3rd yr) has been included in CBC’s 30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30 list for 2023. Hamilton is currently studying with UBC Professor, Piano and Chamber Music, Corey Hamm.
“Hamilton won first prize at Vancouver’s 2022 Architecture of Music Competition last September. In November, he was a semifinalist at the OSM Competition. “I had to learn three new pieces in the span of only four months, which taught me a lot about efficient practice,” he recalls. He won second prize at the 2022 Shean Piano Competition, where playing Liszt’s B Minor Sonata was a highlight. Two months before that, he performed Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the UBC Symphony Orchestra as the winner of the UBC Concerto Competition.”
