About the Event

AmateurPianists is pleased to announce an amazing concert experience. Marie-Agathe Charpagne, the 2nd prize winner of the 2019 International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs, will return to San Diego to play at this special fund-raising event! 

Marie is not only an incredible pianist with astounding technical capabilities that brings forth nuanced musical colors, she also holds a PhD in Materials Science and will be starting as an assistant professor at the University of Illinois this upcoming fall.  

Marie grew up in France where she excelled in both piano and science, studying at the Conservatory of Music while pursuing her scientific studies at the Mines ParisTech engineering school. She exemplifies the left/right brain persona which is so wonderful to behold, whether you are having a conversation with her on high-temperature oxidation-resistant coatings for superalloys or the chord progressions that characterizes Debussy or Rachmaninoff!  

There will be 2 types of tickets to this concert. A limited number of tickets will be available for an in-person, live experience at a beautiful, private home in La Jolla. This includes a meet-the-artist reception after the concert. (Fully vaccinated folks are welcome to attend along with those with negative Covid test results in the week prior.) The event will also be live-streamed and tickets for watching the virtual concert are also available for those who prefer to stay home or are in locations outside of San Diego.  

All proceeds of this concert will go toward the 2022 International Piano Competition and Festival for Outstanding Pianists which will be held from June 24-26, 2022 at The Conrad in La Jolla, California.
