Toronto amateur pianist Ricker Choi gets centre stage at COC lunchtime concert Nov. 22

By John Terauds on November 22, 2011

It’s been three years since I met Ricker Choi, financial risk analyst by day, white-knuckle pianist by night.

He’s taken every master class and lesson he can get his fingers on, and competes regularly in amateur piano contests.

He is also living proof that we can achieve pretty much anything we want, if we really, really try hard.

Choi presents an hour-long recital at noon today, as part of the Canadian Opera Company’s regular recital series.

The program is a dramatic sandwich: Sonata No. 5 by Alexander Scriabin, four of the Op. 118 Intermezzi by Johannes Brahms and La Valse by Maurice Ravel.

For more info on the COC’s free concert series, click here.

For a taste of Choi’s chops, check out a lobby recital he gave last week at Classical96 FM.
