Young Kate Receives Rave Reviews in Childrens' Virtual International Events

Katherine Asia Hibbs (Kate) is 9 years old and the youngest member of our Premier Class. She has received terrific reviews in 3 separate international virtual auditions this spring. Kate was the Winner, First Prize, of Little Mozart’s Crescendo International Competition, 2022 (virtual). The competition was for age 9 and under. She will be presented in the Winners’ Recital and Awards Ceremony, Carnegie Hall, New York, in May, 2022. This was followed by a Gold Award – First Prize in the Global Children and Youth Piano Competition, Hong Kong (virtual), and a Second Prize win in the American Protégé International Music Talent Competition (virtual). Ranging in age from 6-12, Kate will be presented in another Winners’ Recital and Awards Ceremony, Carnegie Hall, New York, scheduled for 2023.


We look for really big things from Kate now and in the future. She possesses all the elements and possibilities of a burgeoning virtuoso. Look for her posting to our Student Showcase in the near future!
