Carnegie Hall Calling for Grade 3 BVG student

Wednesday, February 22, 2017


Hi, I’m Ethan Yam, a Grade 3 student at Bayview Glen.  I have been playing the piano since I was 4 years old.  Back in November 2016, I participated in the Crescendo International Music Competition and won First Place in the Junior division!  I was then invited to perform my winning piece, Air in B Flat Major by Handel, at the Winners’ Recital held at Carnegie Hall on February 12, 2017. 

While I was waiting at the backstage for my turn to perform, I was a little nervous.  But once I started playing on stage and facing the crowd, my fingers began to move to the music and I was not scared anymore.

I had a fun time traveling to New York City with my family even though our flight got delayed because of the huge snow storm. Carnegie Hall is a large and beautiful building.  It was such an amazing experience to perform in one of the most prestigious concert halls in the world and I feel so proud of myself after I finished my performance on stage!
