Piano Powerhouses

Svetlana Belsky, UChicago Director of the Piano Program, shares another great success:  “Elaine Yao (pictured below) and Kyler Shin won 1st and 3rd place, respectively, at the Illinois State Music Teachers Association at Milliken University in Decatur, Illinois.  Sarah Prescott and Giuliana Vaccarino Gearty also presented great programs.  The fact that our pianists are able to compete so successfully against conservatory students and performance majors speaks highly not only of their talent, but also of dedication and hard work.  I could not be more proud of all of them!!!”

Congratulations, performers!
