At the very young age of 9 and 11 respectively, Jeremiah and Ethan Wang know how to perform. The CCGS pianists were recently invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City, a huge achievement at such a young age.
“I felt really proud and grateful to mum who helps me practice everyday, my teacher Mr Lee who teaches me so well and the teachers at Christ Church who help and encourage me to be excellent in everything that I do,” said Jeremiah.
Their love of music and the piano began when they were just three years old. Both boys say they chose the piano because they love the sound of the instrument.
“I like the piano because you can express yourself. I also like the sound of the piano and exploring the music,” said Ethan.
Following their success at the Golden Classical Music Awards in July, the boys were invited to the prestigious Carnegie Hall where Jeremiah played the 1st movement of Haydn’s Sonata in G minor and Ethan played the 1st movement of Mozart’s Sonata in B-flat Major K333.
“Performing at Carnegie Hall was definitely the highlight of the trip but I also liked seeing the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building,” said Jeremiah.
