Our thanks to all who participated in the 2019-2020 Grand Rapids Youth Symphony Piano Concerto Competition. We are pleased to announce this year’s winners:
Lydia Seaver is a home-schooled high school senior from Muskegon, Michigan. She studies piano with Dr. Sookkyung Cho, an instructor at Grand Valley State University, where she plans to enter the music program in the fall. Seaver will perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 with the GRYS at its winter concert on Sunday, March 1, 2020. The concert begins at 3 p.m. at DeVos Performance Hall in downtown Grand Rapids.
This concert is also the culmination of our 200-Minute Practice Challenge for all area 5th- through 8th-grade musicians.
