Michael Hill Competition is a unique event, because it gives everyone
of the chosen participants a great confidence by providing them with a
great package: travel expenses, fantastic host families, great official
pianists and orchestra. (It's a wonderful idea to be able to discover
both islands of New Zealand.) We have enjoyed a responsive public and
been supported very professionally by the media! Well done!"|
