In Feb, my students won top prizes in the 2023 United States Open Music Competitions. It is an annual competition in a recital format and offers multiple categories for elementary to advanced-level students. Although the competition will only award one Gold medalist, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places are given to more than one student depending on the judges' discretion.
USOMC also gives special scholarship prizes to the Outstanding Gold medalists who competed against all other gold medalists in the Sat winners concert. My student Sanyi won this particular award four years in a row!!
