About Catherine:
Hailing from Toronto, Catherine started playing the piano when she was 4 years old. Currently Catherine is a full scholarship student at the Phil and Eli Taylor Performance Academy for Young Artists.

Catherine was invited to play in “Toronto’s Talent” when she was only six and was interviewed by Toronto CTV when she was seven. She competed in various competitions including the CCC Piano Competition and the Canadian Music Competition, and won various first place awards. In 2014, Catherine received a mark of 97 in the Canadian Music Competition, and her stunning performance of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G was met with a standing ovation. In 2017, she won first prize in the 28 and under piano category of the Ontario Music Festivals Association, and advanced to the Federation of Canadian Music Festival Nationals, where she received third place. A year later, she participated in the Cleveland International Piano Competition for Young Artists, and was a semifinalist. Recently, Catherine also won first prize at the first annual Geringas Scholarship competition.

She has participated in master classes with Marietta Orlov, David Louie, Christina Quilico, Alvin Zhu, Kum Sing Lee, James Anagnoson, and Robert McDonald.
