TV Appearance: Elena Cobb Star Prize Performers from the Albuquerque Institute of Music on the News

Students from the Albuquerque Institute of Music took their skills to the next level by appearing on the KRQE TV at Albuquerque, New Mexico on 10 August 2018.

Ivan Belyaev (13yo), Emily Yang (8yo) and their piano pedagogue Tatyana Bayliyeva gave a TV interview to the news reporter where they shared their experience with the Elena Cobb Star Prize Event at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

I was delighted to invite Ivan Belyaev to the concert at the Royal Albert Hall after he won the Gold Medal for the performance of Arabia Étude-Tableau by Elena Cobb at the Golden Keys Piano Competition in Vienna in 2017.

Emily Yang will be joining other young pianists at RAH in London next year after winning the 1st prize at the Contemporary Composer Category at the Carmel Klavier International Piano Competition for Young Artists earlier this summer. Emily performed Hummingbird Étude-Tableau by Andrew Higgins and From the Frog’s Diary by Irina Nenartovich.
