The results of the e-Piano Competition are in

Posted at 8:38 AM on July 13, 2013 by Melissa Ousley

One of the things I love most about the Concerto Round of the International e-Piano Junior Competition is watching members of the Minnesota Orchestra do their absolute best to make these kids shine. Conductor Mark Russell Smith gets the award for mentoring the contestants and, after just one rehearsal, keeping soloist and orchestra together. It all added up to a pretty exciting concert yesterday at the Ted Mann Concert Hall in Minneapolis. Last night, the awards were presented. Here's the scoop:

1st Prize: Eric Lu (Eric was also awarded the Schubert Prize)
2nd Prize: Carmen Knoll (Carmen was also awarded the Variations Prize)
3rd Prize: Yuanfan Yang
4th Prize: JiaXin Min
5th Prize: Christopher Son Richardson
