Cooke Young Artist Wins Top Honors at International Piano Competition
Oscar Paz-Suaznabar, who received our Cooke Young Artist Award in 2015, competed in the prestigious VII Chopin International Piano Competition last week. We are excited to learn that he was awarded Grand Prix in the “Junior” category — congratulations, Oscar!
Each year From the Top’s Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award Program provides 20 outstanding young musicians who demonstrate financial need with a $10,000 scholarship to advance their artistic development and education. In addition, Cooke Young Artists perform on the hit NPR and PBS program, “From the Top,” and participate in arts leadership training to spread the power of classical music.
Such wonderful news from one of our youngest performers and recipient of our The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Artist Award. Way to go Oscar, we’re proud of you! -Jodi
