The 25th Young Artist Competition - Piano


Congratulations to our First Prize winner, Marc Fishman!

The Final Round of the 25th Long Island Philharmonic Young Artist Competition was held on Monday, April 3, 2012 at Steinway Piano Gallery in Melville, NY. Marc Fishman, who is an 11th grader at Great Neck South High School (Great Neck), won First Prize. Second Prize went to Maxim Lando, a 4th grader at JFK Elementary School (Great Neck); third prize to David Wu, a 12th grader at Comsewogue High School (Comsewogue); and Honorable Mention went to Alexander Huang, a 10th grader at Carle Place Middle & High School (Carle Place).

The Long Island Philharmonic’s Young Artist Competition, an integral part of the Orchestra’s commitment to Arts-In-Education, alternately focuses on instruments in one of three disciplines: Piano, Strings, or Woodwinds & Brass. The competition offers aspiring young Long Island musicians an opportunity to achieve the recognition of their peers, the public, and the distinguished panel of judges.

Marc made his debut performance with the Long Island Philharmonic at their Annual Gala at Oheka Castle on May 3, 2012.
