AIMS Young Musician Award 2018

Joshua Lau (Year 9) and Maegan Ang (Year 10) took part in the AIMS Young Musician Award of the Year 2018 at Nexus International School in Putrajaya last weekend.

Both students were in Category B (aged 11 to 14). Out of 27 participants from international schools in Malaysia, Maegan was awarded the ‘Special Mentioned’ prize and Joshua Lau was chosen to be one of the four finalists that competed in the Final round the next day.

The standard was extremely high and the judges graded the performance on clarity, confidence in their playing (that includes stage appearance), quality of musicianship and stylistic understanding. Both executed their performances very well and the judges spoke very highly of their musicianship skills. Well done!
