Two Los Alamos students, Catherine Chen, pianist and Jennifer Kwon, violinist will represent New Mexico in the senior division at the Southwest Divisional Competition of the Music Teachers National Association.
The contest will be held in Tucson, Ariz., Saturday and Sunday. The Los Alamos students competed for first place on their specific instrument and the honor of representing the state at the Professional Music Teachers Conference, which was held Nov. 14-15 in Los Alamos.
This divisional area is comprised of Hawaii, California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. Each of these states sends one representative in each area of performance to the competition and the winner of that audition travels to the MTNA National Competition, which will be held in Atlanta in March. He or she then competes for first place against the other five divisions in the United States.
The winner of this competition performs on the winner’s recital at the MTNA National Conference, receives a cash prize and earns other honors.
Kwon first began playing the violin when she was 8 years old and studied with Alice Mutschlecner, Cheryl Smith-Ecke, and is currently studying with Marion Pack.
