Everyone remembers the amazing performance by Thomas Vanderveken, who last season succeeded in mastering Grieg’s piano concerto in the space of one year.

He also succeeded in another goal: an online competition ‘Speel het hard’, in which amateur musicians - young and old – could take up the same challenge and learn a piece in one year.

The challenge was such a success that Canvas aims to engage amateur musicians from the whole of Flanders again this year.
