Freshman Kim Adam has been awarded the Grand Prix in the Music Fest Rising Talents competition. As the winner of the highest award, Kim would normally be invited to perform in a recital at Carnegie Hall, but due to the pandemic performed virtually instead. The Festival is led by a panel of experienced judges, and performers are evaluated and invited to participate in either the Grand Prix, Grand Prize, Gold, or Silver level prize of the Winner Circle Concert Series.
Kim Adam has also been named the winner of the Warminster Symphony Orchestra’s 2021 Young Artist Competition Youth Division. This competition was open to all instruments, including voice. Kim attended the competition in person with Villa Maria piano faculty member Mrs. Carucci. In addition to receiving the opportunity to give a solo performance with the orchestra, she will receive a monetary prize.
