LCP Reporting in with more good news! On Saturday, June 4th, in Long Beach, a few of our LCP pianists competed in the Musical Arts Competition of Orange County.

Since the 1940s, which is probably before your parents were born, this non-profit organization has been hosting annual competitions in the spring for pianists and vocalists. Over the years, they expanded the competition to woodwinds, strings, and even guitars.

But… we only entered for piano, because piano is obviously the best instrument.

All students were required to perform two pieces from a select group of classical piano books, depending on the category they were enrolled in. Each category was separated by a different age requirement. For example, the highest Category which is Category XI, was for age 19 and under! Which means, you could have 14 year olds compete with someone who is as old as 19 year old! For a closer look at it, check out this link.

And we did that for several. And was still able to win.

We have a total of 8 winners and 4 that received honorable mention. Not only that, we were able to get FOUR 1st place winners, whom were invited to perform at Richard Nixon Library on June 19th. That means more than HALF of our winners came out as 1st place!

1st Place Winner – Breanna Nguyen

Category IIIb
1st Place Winner – Isabella Tran

It’s almost the end of June and a big update is long overdue. Your Little Chopin writer has been super busy with finishing up a year of school, but now he is back with good news.

First of all we would like to announce the LCP winners of the MTNA CAPMT Sonata-Sonatina competition, which took place on May 1st in Los Angeles. (MTNA is short for Music Teachers National Association, while CAPMT is California Association of Professional Music Teachers)  All participants had to perform a standard Sonata / Sonatina from composers like Liszt, Mozart, or Khachaturian etc. by memory in front of two judges! Depending on the category, students either had to memorize one movement of the sonata, or the whole sonata! To give you an estimate about how long that could be, Beethoven’s Sonata Op. 2, No. 1 is composed of 4 movements for a total of 26 pages long! That’s an incredibly long piece to memorize! Congratulations to all of these winners. As always, we are super proud of them!

 Category I grades 1-3: 
3rd Place WinnerBella Dang

Category II grades 4-6:
Honorable mention Nicole Ho

Category III grades 7-9:
1st Place WinnerHong-An Hoang
