CIPC Young Artists Competition winners Yuanfan Yang & Jae Hong Park

CIPC Young Artists is an international competition for pianists ages 12 through 18 presented by the Cleveland International Piano Competition.  Launched by the CIPC in 2003 as a one-day competition for Ohio piano students, the program has been reorganized this year to follow the multi-round format of the CIPC.

15-year-old Jae Hong Park (r) from South Korea is the first prize winner in the Junior Division, and 18-year-old Yuanfan Yang (l) from the United Kingdom won first prize in the Senior Division. They spoke with Angela Mitchell the morning after winning the competition.
