Valentina Lisitsa

Last week I attended a performance at our school. The music department brought in special guest pianist, Valentina Lisitsa. I went, unsure of what to expect, and I was blown away by her amazing performance.

Valentina is originally from Ukraine, and she is a world class pianist. Just in the week following her performance here, she was scheduled to go on to Paris and London. I am continually surprised by the opportunities offered to me here at school. Sometimes they are easily overlooked, but they always are so enriching.

Here is a video I found. It isn't the exact piece she played for us, but it showcases her amazing talent well. A friend likened her playing to a ballerina dancing over the keys!
