American Protege International Concerto Competition… EVEN MORE RESULTS?!



We’ve spoken far too soon. In additional the 6 USOMC Winners and the 9 Fullerton teams, we have a final contestant that scored BIG TIME.

Taking up Aldric Gozon’s mantel from 2015, LCP pianist Celine Tseng has entered the American Protégé International Concerto Competition in 2016. Contestants complete from all over the world, and a panel of judges review a video submission of their performance.

Winning this competition is no easy feat. There is just simply no room for error. From the first note to the final bow, a single slip will cost them everything. It might even cost them an invitation to perform in Carnegie Hall in New York.

Celine Tseng, our 15 year old pianist, has risen up to the challenge. Arming herself with a concerto by Saint-Saens, she spent months perfecting her piece.

And she won.

Celine Tseng has been chosen as the FIRST PLACE WINNER of the 13-18 age category for this international competition. She will perform in Carnegie Hall on July 2nd.

But before then, she will also be performing in our Winner’s Concert on March 12th.

For this Little Chopin has no words. From Fullerton, to USOMC, to this International competition, there are simply no words to express how proud we are. Let’s give it up to Celine Tseng. We salute you.
