While in Tsinandali, she received an offer from the internationally renowned musical instrument manufacturer Bechstein to exclusively present their grand piano in a concert, marking another deal for the in-demand performer.

The pianist will also represent Tbilisi's newly unveiled regional European School, after she was offered to become a cultural ambassador for what has been dubbed the "first European School outside EU borders".

Kipiani received early musical education at the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory under the tutorship of famous Georgian pianist and professor Eliso Virsaladze and graduated from the Royal College of Music in London.

The artist will continue her studies at the Alfred Cortot High School in Paris following her concert in Tbilisi, which is scheduled for September 27.
