Music student Audrey Guo (Year 11) has just been announced as one of the 16 semi-finalists in the 2020 New Zealand Junior Piano Competition.
From over 40 entries, the semi-finalists are between 10 and 18 years old and come from Auckland, Wellington, Lower Hutt and Christchurch. The adjudicator commended the excellent quality of music-making and the dedication from each applicant.
On Friday 2 October, the 16 pianists will perform a 20min recital and then six will progress to the final round. The grand prize is $4,000 and performance opportunities. We wish Audrey all the best in the next round of competition.
