LCP Goes International at Grand Prize Virtuoso 2017!

12February

London, Vienna, Paris, Salzburg, Rome – sounds like the itinerary of a very special vacation. A winners’ vacation!

The Parco Della Musica in Rome, site of the GPV Winner’s Concert.

American Protégé attracts competitors the world over, but the Grand Prize Virtuoso International Competition is another step up!

I count accomplished musicians from OVER FORTY countries among the participants!

And in November 2017, LCP’s finest won not one, but TWO FIRST PRIZES at Grand Prize Virtuoso! Each of them received an invitation to GPV’s city of the year, ROME!

It was Travis Luu’s very first international competition, and he rose up to the challenge. Playing a solo piece was hard enough, but he decided to up the ante by debuting with a four-hand piece! He had to make sure his part was solid while trying not to bump elbows with another pianist at the same piano. And just who was his partner in crime?

None other than Ashley Dixon! …That name sounds familiar, almost as if I just wrote a blog post about her. She didn’t stop at American Protégé, submitting both a duo piece AND a solo piece for the International! Talk about multi-tasking!

Here were their placements and categories:

Travis Luu and Ashley Dixon,

Playing Hungarian Dance No.1 by Brahms

Piano Four Hands, Group A (12 and younger)

First Prize (over 90/100 judge score!)

 

Ashley Dixon,

Playing Fantasiestucke, Op. 12, No. 2 “Aufschwung” by Schumann

Junior Category (Ages 9-12)

First Prize (over 90/100 judge score!)

 

Despite being invited to Rome, Ashley had already made plans to perform at CARNEGIE HALL the same week! Because of this, our students couldn’t make it to the performance this year.

But maybe next year, we’ll see LCP’s young stars take the stage in VIENNA
