Jeremy Wang, age 7: 1st Class Honors with Distinction, Level 1; Lydia Xu, age 7: 1st Class Honors, Level 1Terrence Wang, age 9: 1st Class Honors, Level 5; Tiffany Ren, age 10: 1st Class Honors, Level 7.
These students prepared numerous technical, aural and reading skills for many months in addition to several pieces of repertoire, including etudes. I am very proud of them for working so hard! Bravo to all of you!
Congratulations also to the following students who were winners in the Concert Festival International Auditions held last weekend! They were selected from hundreds of students on all instruments who auditioned to perform in some of the best concert halls in New York this Spring:
