Tony Zheng '18 Earns First Place in Piano Competition

Proving that dedication and hard work pay off, pianist Tony Zheng ’18 won first place in his division in the 16th Annual Young Artist Piano Competition held at Westfield State University on Saturday, Apr. 28. Tony has been studying piano with Dr. Monica Tessitore throughout his Cushing career and this is a wonderful accomplishment!
Founded in 2003, the Young Artist Piano Competition brings together serious classical pianists to compete at a high level and to share their love of playing and learning classical music. It is counted among the top piano competitions in New England.
Tony will give his final Cushing performance during our Spring Music Recital on Tuesday, May 15 at 6:00 pm. The event will take place in the JRCAC Theatre Room; we will also offer a live webcast at cushing.org/live.
