Maud O’Hanlon taught students of the piano in the Cork School of Music for over thirty years, and the Maud O’Hanlon Perpetual Trophy is awarded annually to the highest-placed student in the Grade 5 Piano Examination - the most distinguished student in the Intermediate Cycle.
The Jansson siblings – Ellen, Kevin & Anna have the unique distinction of each winning this trophy in turn and a piece of CSM history has been created.
It is all the more special in that Dad, Tom Jansson [CSM Lecturer] was a piano student of Maud O’Hanlon at CSM right up to grade 8 in the early 80s.
Congratulations to the Jansson Family on this very special achievement.
