Celine Kang at Carnegie Hall

Year 12 student, Celine Kang, performed at the prestigious Carnegie Hall, in New York on Wednesday 14 March 2018.

Celine, who is an aspiring concert pianist, took out first prize in the advanced piano section at the Golden Classical Music Awards to claim the honour of playing in New York.

At the encore-like performance at the Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, Celine performed Pierre Sancan’s Toccata, to an audience comprised of fellow musicians, teachers and the Golden Classical Competition foundation members, as well as parents and families of prize-winners.

Carnegie Hall is renowned as being one of the most prestigious venues in the world for both classical and popular music, and has seen the likes of Elton John, The Beatles, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and Celine Dion perform live.

Celine has already established herself as a performer of high calibre. Her many major achievements include winning First Place at the Grand Virtuoso International Competition, being nominated to perform at the Weiner Musikverein in Austria, being nominated to perform at the Port Macquarie Glass House and performing a solo concerto at the Sydney Opera House as part of MLC School’s biennial Music Concert, Legacy.

Celine has played a prominent role in MLC School’s music endeavours, having performed in many concerts and award evenings throughout her time at the school. MLC School’s music program caters for performers of all levels and encourages every girl to participate and explore their creative talents.

We congratulate Celine on this incredible achievement and wish her all the very best in her future music endeavours.
