Congratulations to Isabella Fang ’24, Morgan Kerr ’24, Amy Lu ’24, Caroline Yu ’25, and Colleen Eveson ’26 (online entry) who earned Honors ratings and outstanding evaluations by their adjudicators at the 2023 Young Artist Auditions piano competition on Saturday, March 11, at Meredith College. 


This annual event is sponsored by the Raleigh Piano Teachers Association, which recently received a national award by Music Teachers National Association as “2023 Local Affiliate of the Year.” Over 700 students and 78 teachers from the greater Triangle Area participated.  Requirements for the Solo Honors portion are two contrasting pieces memorized and performed at high level, one chosen from a required list of American composers and one chosen from the classical mainstream repertoire. Three area music companies gave generously in support of the Young Artist awards.

Special congratulations to Morgan Kerr ’24, who won 2nd Place, and Amy Lu ’24, who won Honorable Mention in their respective categories. Both Amy and Morgan will be recognized at the Young Artist Auditions Honors Recital and awards ceremony on March 19 at Meredith College, where they will be called to the stage to receive their cash awards.
