Lee University students, Si Yao Li and Janet Yu, were selected as winners in the Southern Adventist Orchestra Concerto Competition in Collegedale. 

Ms. Li and Ms. Yu are both students in Lee University’s School of Music.

Ms. Li is a freshman music performance (piano) major, studying under Ning An, assistant professor of music at Lee. Ms. Li has been playing violin since the age of six and has won numerous competitions in her native China. 

A freshman music performance (piano) major, Ms. Yu, also a student of An’s, has been playing since the age of five and has won many competitions in her native Taiwan.

The competition’s five winners, including Ms. Li and Ms. Yu, will perform a concerto with the Southern Adventist Symphony Orchestra in Collegedale on Sunday.

For the concerto, Ms. Li will play the Liszt piano concerto number 1. Ms. Yu will perform the Beethoven 2nd concerto third movement.

Southern Adventist University established the competition in 1990 in efforts to feature performances by talented young musicians. 

Applicants were required to submit a recording of their music. From those applicants, a select number of finalists were chosen to perform a live audition with the orchestra to determine the five winners.
