He might have played the piano for royalty and the Pope, but 10-year-old Wesley Chu still likes watching TV and playing Pokemon games. At age five, he was the youngest person to complete nine piano grades in one year at the history of the Canadian Royal Conservatory of Music, but drawing and playing with his friends are important too. The Canadian-Chinese piano prodigy, who played at the Hong Kong handover ceremony in 1997, will be back in town this month to perform at various functions including the Hong Kong Film Awards on April 21. Wesley, who was born in Calgary - to mother Lucia, a music teacher originally from Hong Kong, and father Simon, a vocal coach - started playing the piano when he was three. He took to it with ease, gave his first performance six weeks later, and before he was five, started to compose his own music. Wesley performed one of his own compositions at the Vatican Christmas Concert in 1999. Among his repertoire are pieces from Brahms, Gershwin and Bach, all of which he performed before his feet could reach the pedals. He has been described as having 'the mind of Mozart and the hands of Beethoven'. Wesley became the youngest person to pass his Grade 10 piano with honours at the music conservatory. He practises for about two hours a day, with breaks for playing games. The young virtuoso has appeared on TV with comedians Bill Cosby and Rosie O'Donnell, and released his first CD in 1998. His tour will run from April 19 to 29. To win the chance to be one of four people to meet Wesley on April 25, enter our Young Post Web site competition.
