The Nanaimo Conservatory of Music is also a presenter of music events in the central Vancouver Island region. Each year we offer a variety of professional music performances as an opportunity for our students and the community to experience music programming that would otherwise not be available in our area.  Our most recent annual solo piano recitals have featured pianists Angela Hewitt, Sarah Hagen, Janina Fialkowska, André Laplante, and Jane Coop.  Looking ahead to October 2018  the NCM is pleased to present renowned Canadian pianist Ian Parker in recital.
