Keiko Kircher plays piano at 4. She started practicing with tutors, but then she had to move to the USA when she wasn’t able to play. However, after entering the university, she started to play piano during her free time. That was the moment of success, and she managed to become a great teacher and a bachelor of science in the University of Illinois.
Keiko Kircher is a pianist from the USA with Japanese routes. She will make two free concerts in Saint Petersburg on September 8 and 10.
These days Keiko Kircher makes a tour around the world, participating in numerous competitions. In particular, she won “Fortepiano bridges” competition in 2017, and her prize was the chance to make two performances in Saint Petersburg. She decided to make them on September 8 and 10.
