Southern California Junior Bach Festival

On May 12, Andrew Tang competed in the Regional festival of the Southern California Junior Bach Festival – Andrew was a regional winner and will proceed to compete in the state final “Complete Works Audition.” This festival is highly competitive – students first compete in the Branch festival in February, the winners proceed to the Regional festival in May, and the winners from each Region then compete in the state final later in the year.

I am extremely proud to announce that two students took home 1st Prize at the 5th Temecula Young Artist Piano Competition held on June 2.
