Vadim Repin International Master Class Scholarship Competition Winners.

 

As part of our 10th Anniversary Celebration we were very excited to announce that the world renowned violinist Vadim Repin has graciously agreed to lead a masterclass for AFAF students. At the conclusion of the masterclass Mr. Repin surprised us when he decided to graciously donate his entire honorarium to the scholarship fund and has selected not one, but two of the participants for the V. Repin Masterclass Scholarship! American Fine Arts Festival would like to congratulate Aaron-Timothy Chooi, who will receive a $3,000 scholarship, and Lindsey Jelin Lee, who will receive $2,000 scholarship. Both winners will have the opportunity to perform at the AFAF 10th Anniversary Celebration Concert at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall on May 18, 2013. …more
