9-year-old Pianist Alex Yang in Performance at Evenings @ Government House

The Talent Trust has partnered with Government House to present a piano recital with scholarship recipient Alex Yang. Alex’s September 18 performance is part of the Evenings @ Government House series.

His repertoire will include pieces by J. S. Bach, Mozart, Chopin, and Beethoven.

At nine years old, Alex is one of our youngest scholarship recipients. He’s studied piano with Lynn Stodola for the past three years, and also plays violin.

Alex won first place in each of his five piano repertoire classes at the 2018 Kiwanis Music Festival, and and was invited to perform at the Festival’s Gala, where he received the Gordon Murray Rising Star Award. 

Alex was the Bronze Prize winner of the 2017 Canadian Music Competition National Final and won the Silver Prize at the 2018 National Final. He was awarded 2018 scholarships for the intermediate group in piano and the junior group in violin by the Nova Scotia Registered Music Teachers’ Association Competition.
