We offer a big “Congratulations!” to seven William Pu Music Academy students who placed first, second, or third in their divisions of the very first Atlanta Festival Academy Competition. As with the first AFA last summer, this Competition was an immediate international success and drew 89 competitors from seven countries! So with such a large competitive field we are incredibly proud of our winners: Jason Seo, Yining Zhang, Charlotte Jeong, Olivia Kim, Angelina Lu, Jeremiah Jung, Brandon Lee, and John Cho. We want to highlight Jason’s success especially, since he was selected the First Place winner in the Strings – Senior division. As such he will receive both a cash prize as well as a full scholarship to the 2021 Atlanta Festival Academy, a nearly $1,650 value! Finally we applaud the effort of all the young musicians who entered this competition, 33 of whom study at WPMA – way to go, everyone!
