A note from 2014 semifinalist Sung-Soo Cho
I am thankful for all of the people who came together for the World Piano Competition last June. I have such nice memories of the people and city – it’s always nice to meet such an appreciative audience. I was also so grateful to receive the special prize for Best American Contemporary Performance.
I took a bit of a rest in Korea after the World Piano Competition, and I am now heading to Switzerland for the Geneva International Music Competition. It is stressful to prepare for and participate in several competitions within a year, but I am excited and thankful for the opportunity to meet new people and explore Europe!
