Lucy playing Piano at Amber Trust Concert 2022

Lucy leaves the judges speechless!

Lucy achieved 'performance of the night' on the finale of Channel 4's The Piano, receiving a standing ovation for her performance of Debussy's Arabesque no. 1 at the Royal Festival Hall. We are so proud of everything she has accomplished on the show!

The Amber Trust has worked with Lucy for 8 years through our Music Awards programme, funding the piano lessons she receives with her wonderful teacher, Daniel.

We are incredibly proud to support Lucy and are thrilled to see her grow into such an amazing young musician. Learn more about her by watching Lucy's Story, an Amber film. You can also see Lucy perform in Amber's 2022 Annual Concert.
