Our 4 1st place winners performed at the Richard Nixon Library Foundation!

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!
