Details: Everett Hopfner is a 24 year old piano wiz who is the latest winner of the Eckhardt Gramatte National Music Competition. The prestigious competition is a highlight in the classical music field for young artists and often showcases Canada’s top performers before they hit the world stage. Already an accomplished performer, Hopfner is the first Manitoban to take top honours at the national competition based in Brandon, MB. Everett won over the crowd and jury with a recital that included a performance of Jerome Kitzke’s “Sunflower Sutra,” based on the poem by Allen Ginsberg, in which he had to speak, scream, laugh, sing, and drum on the piano. His performance at Hart House promises to be a musical journey and a culmination of his years of hard work, innate talent and practiced perfection. Hopfner is an emotive, energetic and intense performer who has a very promising career ahead of him.
