Seeing Kathy Lin, a Los Alamos High School junior, by a piano is not an uncommon sight in Los Alamos. Residents have frequently been able to enjoy her performances, whether that performance was a student recital, a Brown Bag show or a Professional Music Teachers New Mexico Honors competition. Lin’s skill as a pianist is one of many musical gifts presented to the community.
Now that gift will be given to a much bigger audience. As the result of winning first place in the piano competition at the Jackie McGehee Young Artists’ Concerto Competition for Piano and String, Lin will perform with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra during its Mother’s Day Concert May 10 at the Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque.
She will play “Concert No. 2 in D Minor” by Edward McDowell.
“I was really excited because I really wanted the chance to play with the symphonic orchestra,” Lin said. “It’s a really unique experience to play with an orchestra because most people don’t get to do that.”
Also, she received a $500 cash prize.
Lin was not the only Los Alamos student to be awarded for her talents on the piano. Los Alamos High School senior Catherine Chen earned second place in the piano competition as well as a $300 cash prize.
Lin and Chen are students of Lynn Lamb.
