Artist info

Chiho Tsunakawa

A remarkable young pianist, Chiho Tsunakawa was born in Japan and began learning piano at the age of 3. When Chiho was only 12, she came to London to study piano as a pupil of Noretta Conci-Leech, a greatest pupil of Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli. Chiho then became a student of Tessa Nicholson at the junior department of the Royal Academy of Music, where she also took violin lessons. She attended the Arts Educational School, London, before she joined the Purcell School of Music where she represented the Piano department and gave many performances including a performance for the Prince Charles. Chiho then received a scholarship to study at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music under Tessa Nicholson and Rustem Hayroudinoff, gaining both undergraduate and postgraduate degree. Later, Chiho has gained her Master's degree at the Royal College of Music, under the guidance of Gordon Fergus-Thompson.

Chiho has given solo performances on NHK Radio in Japan and her Schubert’s Trout Quintet performance at the Wigmore Hall was also broadcasted on radio in London. Chiho has been a prizewinner over 25 times in competitions.

Bristol Cathedral is situated in the middle of the city at the bottom of Park Street. It was founded in 1140, but was built gradually over a period of 700 years. The Cathedral hosts numerous events and concerts throughout the year. Many of these are open to the public, and some are free, including the regular lunchtime concerts on Tuesdays.
