This was the night of the 19th Annual Piano Ensemble Festival, where the winners of that festival were carefully selected to perform at Fullerton College. This festival was sponsored by the Fullerton College Music Department and the Orange Branch Music Teachers Association of California. On the list were old winners and new winners, veteran players and ones that have just made their debut. But so many were our own students. In fact, ALL the teams that were sent from Little Chopin were winners. All eight teams placed and four of them won the Grand Prize. They dominated the stage, claimed their trophies, and we at Little Chopin must award them for their hard work. Ensemble festivals require teamwork from their partners, cooperation from their parents, and the coaching of our teachers. Little Chopin could not be more proud.

These are the winning teams:
In Early Intermediate: Trisha and Thanh Tong; Grace Bui-Luu and Rose Bui-Luu; Michelle Hoang and Fiona Loan Vo (Grand Prize Winners)

 

In Late Intermediate: Nicole Phan and Tu Trinh, Sara Tran and Katrina Tran (Grand Prize Winners)
