Pianist Panos Karan Shares Message for a Happy New Year

SURREY, UK – Greek-born pianist Panos Karan shared a message for a Happy New Year along with young musicians performing around the world through his Keys of Change nonprofit organization.

Karan said via email: “When I started Keys of Change in 2011, my main motivation was to use music as a powerful tool to inspire, motivate, and change lives, and the world, for the better. Today, ten years later, on the very first day of 2021, many of us, including myself, need this change and would like to be inspired, motivated and encouraged by the sense of a new beginning.”

He continued, “Young musicians from five distinct corners of the world, most of whom have never met each other before, come together in a positive and creative spirit, to use music and music learning to improve themselves and share with the world something that would have never otherwise been expected from them: unity, determination, hope.”

Karan concluded, “On behalf of all of us at Keys of Change, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the support received through the years and wish all our friends, supporters, musicians and volunteers a happy and prosperous 2021!”
