Every year, young aspiring artists converge at the YWCA and compete for this opportunity, and we have grown to see the performances of over 1,892music students aged 5-22 since the Competition launched 21st years ago.
This year, we added woodwinds categories and we will hear their music at the Winner’s Concert. We are also excited to introduce Sophia Shao, our 11 year old Grand Prize winner who demonstrated her incredible musical gifts on piano.
Many thanks to all of the family and friends for their unwavering support for these amazing young artists.
