About André Laplante

Pianist André Laplante is a commanding recitalist, a chamber musician of distinction, and a concerto soloist of formidable virtuosity guided by a rare musical intelligence.

Hailed as one of the great romantic virtuosos, he has performed extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia, and has released a series of ever more impressive CDs. He garnered international attention after winning prizes at the Geneva and Sydney International Piano Competitions and capturing the silver medal at the International Tchaïkovsky Competition in Moscow and making his debut at Carnegie Hall. Critics have compared him with Ashkenazy, Horowitz and Rudolph Serkin, placing him in the elite circle of virtuoso pianists who do not hesitate to take risks.Mr. Laplante has worked with such distinguished conductors as John Storgårds, Kent Nagano, Sir Neville Marriner, Jacques LaCombe, Sergiu Comissiona, Rudolph Barshai, Fabien Gabel, Alexander Mickelthwate, Andrew Davis, Kazuoshi Akiyama, Tatsuya Shimono, and the late Sir Yehudi Menuhin among many others. He has appeared widely in Europe, Asia, the U.S., and at Canadian and international festivals.

“HCA is like a home away from home. A place to pursue your creative passion with amazing instructors and likeminded students.”
“The HCA is like a second home to me! I’ve been part of the HCA family first as a young dancer, and now well into my professional singing career. The teachers/coaches/mentors at HCA are easily the best in the GTA and they provide you with knowledge, training and support you need when going into the Fine Arts world as a young professional. I wouldn’t have wanted to train and perfect my craft anywhere else!”
“The Hamilton Conservatory is a really special place in our family. It’s a non-competitive environment where children’s love for dance, theatre, music, and arts are cultivated. We have met so many families and formed special friendships over the years because of HCA.”
“My daughters took their first dance steps at HCA and their first music classes here and have had amazing learning experiences in classes and at recitals. From the incredible level of instruction to the organization and professionalism of the administration, HCA is such a wonderful and special place for children of all ages to develop their artistic abilities. It really feels like home!”
“HCA has been a home to me for a decade. All the camps, classes, and programs have  formed my passion for the arts. Through this incredible place, I’ve formed friendships and memories that will last forever.  Everything that I’ve learned from the amazing teachers and staff members have shaped me and my passion for the arts. Thank you HCA for being my family.”
