On Friday 12 May 2017, Maki gave a spectacular recital alongside Lydia Kavina as part of the JdP Music Building’s Piano Weekend 2. The concert included works by Shostakovich alongside other less known contemporary Russian composers.

In March, Maki Sekiya was appointed as the first Musician in Residence at Green Templeton College, after a marvellous performance last November. Maki’s one-year appointment, to be funded by donations from benefactors including several Fellows of the College, will cover three events comprising recitals and a possible masterclass.
