Last year, sophomore Stephen Wang performed at Carnegie Hall. This year, Wang will give a second performance at the same venue.
Each year, the American Protégé Piano and Strings Competition selects student musicians across the United States to perform at Carnegie Hall. Students record two performances, which are then sent to the judges by mail to be evaluated.
In the video, Wang performs the Scriabin Nocturne, a piece composed for a pianist who had lost his right arm in World War I. Wang learned this piece when he broke his right thumb during Lacrosse preseason.
Wang also performs the fourth movement of the Prokofiev Sonata No. 2 Opus 14, which he performed this year at Carnegie Hall.
