Ten-year-old stuns with Kabalevsky to win title of Young Musician of the Year

Published Monday 25th of March 2019 02:02:09 PM

Karen Mao is our new BCS Young Musician of the Year 2019! This year’s Music Festival has been a window into the extraordinary musical talent we have at Blue Coat, not just from Karen, but from each of the 151 pupils who have auditioned over the last two weeks. Mrs Nadia Hinson, our esteemed adjudicator, had the unenviable task of whittling down our 86 semi-finalists to just 21 class winners who would go on to perform at the evening Gala Concert and Young Musician Final. After some exceptional performances, Mrs Hinson chose Karen to be this year’s worthy winner. Karen, currently working towards Grade 7 piano and Grade 6 viola, is a member of The Royal Birmingham Junior Conservatoire Orchestra. She thrilled a packed recital hall with a dazzling rendition of Kabalevsky’s Piano Sonatina Opus 13 No 1 (3rd Movt.). Well done to everyone who took part!
