Five young Winnipeggers make finals for national music competition

  • Print

Five Winnipeg musicians have qualified for the national final of the Canadian Music Competition, which takes place June 21 to July 3 in Quebec City.

Two eight-year-old pianists, Sarah Shing and Andrew Zhong, made the grade as well as two other pianists, 11-year-old Catherine Dong and 15-year-old Albert Chen.

David Liam Roberts, a 13-year-old cellist, rounds out Manitoba’s contingent.

After regional and provincial competitions, 268 musicians from across Canada made the 85 per cent grade that earned them a spot in the nationals.

Top performers at Quebec City have a shot at more than $100,000 in scholarship money for future musical education. Past winners of the competition, which showcases musicians aged 7 to 30, include violinist James Ehnes, pianist Marc-André Hamelin and guitarist Liona Boyd.
