Daniel Kim, 15, recently auditioned for the American Protégé International Piano and Strings Competition and was awarded second place in the Intermediate (15 – 18 years) Category. The competition was open to school students and adults of all nationalities and countries, and is seen as one of the most prestigious competitions for amateur musicians and where many aspiring musicians get their start.
Daniel applied for the competition in January by recording his performance of Hoffmeister’s Viola Concerto in D Major. His hard work and efforts paid off, and he was thrilled when he received the results. He has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall, regarded as one of the most respected classical venues in the world, and he will be making his New York debut in April 2020.
