February Concerts, 2019

Steven Vanhauwaert, piano,

February, 26th and 28th at 7.00 pm

Steven Vanhauwaert with Marie Huber at the final concert at CCSL in June 2013.


Many Amigos will remember Steven Vanhauwaert from his impressive performance at the final Amigos’ concert held at the São Lourenço Cultural Centre in 2013 and we are delighted to welcome him back again.

Steven is the co-director of the Unbound Chamber Music Festival in Mammoth Lakes, a 3-week long summer festival featuring guest artists from around the world and he is passionate about discovering the less familiar jewels of the classical repertoire and sharing them with his audiences.

A native of Belgium, Steven Vanhauwaert was hailed by the Los Angeles Times’ Mark Swed for his “impressive clarity, sense of structure and monster technique.”  Since then he has appeared in solo recitals at the world’s leading venues and many of his  performances have been broadcast live. He  was also a featured guest in a documentary on creativity for the German/French channel ARTE.

He has made many recordings with, for instance, works by Schumann, Schubert, Liszt, Chopin, and Debussy.
