16-year-old pianist to play Carnegie's recital hall
Young Richmond pianist Karin Chan is heading to New York to play at one of the world's most prestigious concert venues.
Chan, 16, was one of the winners of the Crescendo International Piano Competition, held Dec. 2, 2013 at Tom Lee Music in Vancouver. She has now been invited to perform at the intimate Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall in New York City on Feb. 17.
Chan, a Grade 10 student at A.R. MacNeill Secondary, is a music student of Nicholas Rada and a member of the Donna Fishwick Piano Ensemble. In her young music career, she has already garnered major prizes from local, national and international music festivals.
In 2013 she earned her Associate of The Royal Conservatory diploma for performers with a mark of distinction.
