Ronan Apcar is a young Australian pianist, composer, and musician, and a recent graduate of the ANU School of Music where he completed a Bachelor of Music (Composition/Performance). His love for music across many styles – jazz to the avant-garde, classical to contemporary music – translates into his open-minded, exciting, and unique work as a musician. Though always striving to be a well-rounded musician, Ronan excels in modern and contemporary music and has a passion for breaking the stereotype of classical piano. Beginning as a self-taught pianist, Ronan has since performed as a soloist in concert halls and unique and intimate venues, as a collaborator and member of ensembles like Canberra Sinfonia, and as an orchestral soloist with the Penrith Symphony Orchestra, the ANU Orchestra, and the Sydney Contemporary Orchestra later this year. Ronan has also appeared in festivals, including the 13th International Music Festival in Moscow and the 2021 Canberra International Music Festival where he was the Young Artist. In 2021, he released his debut album, Dulcie Holland Crescent, which was ABC Classic’s feature album of the week in August. Ronan received his LMusA (Distinction) in 2020 and has also been the recipient of several awards including the Margaret Smiles Accompaniment Prize. As a result, he is in demand as a musical collaborator for all types of musicians across the Canberra region.
