CONGRATULATIONS to Liam Billings, who won first place performing "Claire de Lune" by Claude Debussy in the instrumental division of the Bland Competition. He moves on to the regional competition in March!
Liam has been a piano student at Centerstage Academy for over 8 years, studying under the instruction of Guy Hayden. Liam currently attends York High School and performs with the York High Falcon Band.
This is a rehearsal recording of Liam's winning performance. "Claire de Lune" is the third and most famous movement of Debussy's Suite bergamasque. "Clair de lune," the French term for "moonlight," comes from Verlaine's poem of the same name.
