Congratulations to Volume 7 Graduate Charisse Chan

ESPS congratulates Charisse Chan, who is completing her studies of the Suzuki piano repertoire and will graduate from the Suzuki piano program at a concert on June 2, 2019.

Charisse was born in Calgary and began learning basic music skills through the Kodály Method when she was three years old. She started the Suzuki Piano Method at the age of four. After she and her family moved to Edmonton in 2006, Charisse continued to develop her musical skills at piano lessons with ESPS teacher Eleanor Tsui. She was also involved with music classes at her elementary school, and at group classes with other Suzuki students.

During junior high, Charisse began learning flute through her school’s band program and has continued to play in an ensemble throughout high school. Charisse currently attends Harry Ainlay and will be graduating high school this year in addition to graduating Suzuki Piano Volume 7. Outside of music, Charisse enjoys doing calligraphy, cooking, reading, and weight training.

Charisse will perform a variety of music including selections from Mozart, Handel, Chopin, Debussy and Rollin. Her concert will take place in Stollery Hall at the Alberta College Conservatory of Music at 3:00 PM on June 2, 2019. ESPS families are invited to enjoy this special performance.
