2013 Artist Division Semifinalist
2014 Artist Division Competitor
Being a part of various World Piano Competition events has been my pleasure. WPC has different kinds of events for different communities and through this, I’ve been given opportunities to share my music with other people. The audiences are always really great; they love the music a lot and they have the passion about the music.
When I played at Maple Knoll Village, a Cincinnati-area retirement community, the audience loved my performance. They had a lot of interesting questions about the music and my background and I really enjoyed performing for them.

The Bach Beethoven Brahms performance (now known as Hammers, Strings & Keys) is one of the most special events I have ever attended. That was my first time to play a recital for an audience of kids only, and hundreds of them were there. They absolutely loved the music. Will White (CSO Assistant Conductor) and I introduced different composers from different time periods and the kids were so engaged. They liked the composers from the classical period quite a bit!
I hope the WPC will continue to grow and give artists more chances to share our music with people who really love it.
