St. Albert Alum wins top honors
Congratulations to Chris Bird for winning top honors in two recent concerto competitions. Chris, age 17, is a junior at Louisville’s Youth Performing Arts School.
Playing the first movement of the Prokofiev Concerto No. 1 in D-flat major, Chris was one of three winners chosen from both the Youth Performing Arts School Concerto Competition as well as the Louisville Orchestra’s Young Artist Concerto Competition.
The Young Artist competition awards a monetary scholarship, and the award for winning the YPAS competition is the opportunity to play the concerto with the YPAS orchestra. That performance will happen next May.
