Our judges, violinist Simon LaPointe, pianist Dr. Seung-hye Kim, and HRP Music Director Steven Brindle, awarded a Grand Prize, Second Place, Third Place, and two Honorable Mentions. No Encouragement Award was awarded this year as our Grand Prize winner was also our youngest soloist in the competition. All 12 participating soloists demonstrated a high level of preparation. In particular, awards were given to performers that, in addition to their technical preparation, were able to command a performance by playing with intention, emotion, and finesse.” Read more.
