Sai Sivapalan completed his 10th International Piano Guild Program

Sai Sivapalan just completed his 10th International Piano Guild Gold Medal, which is making him eligible for the Paderewski Medal, an honor which each student is eligible only once.
Sai's program included the entire Sonata op 53 "The Waldstein" by L v Beethoven, the Ballade op 38 by Chopin, the Prelude and Fugue WTC I in G Maj by J S Bach; the Liszt Transcendental Etude #6 Vision, the
Debussy Prelude bk 1 The Sunken Cathedral; the c# minor op posth. Nocturne by Chopin and the Hoiby Prelude plus scales, chords, cadences, arpeggios, sight reading and ear training. Sai's examination was 1 hour long.
Sai is in 11th grade and us looking forward to a medical career.

Sai drove all the way to Ventura to perform his program. He is so busy, that was the only time we could find to have him test.

It is amazing to me, what students can achieve these days, if they put their minds to it.
