With great pride, we introduce the winners of the 2021 BMC High School Piano Competition! This competition is the first of five instrumental and vocal competitions completed in March.
This year’s BMC Awards story is both dramatic and a bit heroic. Pandemic precautions made it impossible to hold live competitions, as we had for decades. Our best option was to create a “virtual” performance series that would still allow adjudicator interaction and feedback.
Performances were recorded in homes, churches, and teaching studios, with the help of family, teachers and friends. Technical creativity and resourcefulness were evident, but award ranking was made in our century-old tradition: music selection and preparation, technique, style and interpretation, and overall musicality.
2nd place: Annika Jonson
3rd place: Avrom Lindner
Come back in a few weeks to applaud the winners of BMC High School String Competition!
