Presented entirely online this year, Pilgrimage is a series of concerts during the season of Lent by emerging and established artists in Victoria, raising funds in support of the Victoria Hospice Bereavement Services.
In the second concert of the series, pianist Boyana Makedonska performs works of Ravel, Beethoven, and Robert Schumann.
Bulgarian-Canadian pianist Boyana Makedonska is an active performer and educator based in Vancouver, B.C. Her introspective and sensitive sound has led her to perform across Canada and the U.S as a soloist and chamber musician. She has attended summer programs including Seattle Piano Institute, Orford, Tuckamore Chamber Music Festival and Alberta PianoFest where she has played for renowned artists including John Perry, Sara Davis Buechner, Robin McCabe, Craig Sheppard and Dr. Murray McLachlan. Boyana has received awards from the Yarilo Piano Competition, Coquitlam District Festival, Richmond music Festival and Greater Victoria Festival. In 2019, she was also the GVPAF Silver Medallion finalist and representative of the Greater Victoria area at the provincial Performing Arts BC Festival. In addition to performing, she is an advocate for music education, teaching theory and piano. Holding an ARCT piano performance diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music, she is also pursuing her Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance at UVic under the tutelage of May Ling Kwok.
