Lucy, the extraordinary pianist and winner of Channel 4’s The Piano 2023, has been selected as an International Ambassador of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. Lucy joins a host of exceptional homegrown talent, including Jools Holland, Sting, Guy Chambers, and Karim Kamar to be strong, active advocates of music education access for all of today’s youth. 

Lucy and Lang Lang’s special bond began on Ch4’s The Piano and continued at Windsor Castle where they both appeared at the Coronation Concert playing in front of 18 million people.   Their incredible connection reignited recently, during an impromptu moment at The Royal Albert Hall whilst filming for ITV’s Royal Variety (airing Sunday, December 17 at 8 pm).

The work of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation Ambassadors will continue to raise awareness of the UK’s music education shortfall and help to bridge the gap in funding. The foundation has already installed state-of-the-art Piano Labs in selected primary schools across the capital and teamed up with Child Bereavement UK to seek out areas where the power of music can have a significant impact on a child’s well-being. Initiatives delivered include music workshops, uplifting seminars, and special concerts tailored to their needs.
