On Wednesday, December 28th at 7:30 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Women’s Musical Club of Winnipeg will be holding their annual Scholarship Winners Concert. This year’s concert boasts six excellent young up and coming Manitoba musicians.
One of this year’s winners is pianist Angela Ng who was the winner of the $2500 WMC Scholarship.
Angela has already earned some very prestigious prizes and performance opportunities. She was the Grand Prize winner in the Canadian Music Competition 2017. She also took first place in the American Protégé International Music Talent Competition which secured her a performance at Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall. Winnipeg Music Festival audiences will remember her numerous trophy achievements, including the coveted Aikins Trophy in 2021.
Angela is in her first year of a Piano Performance Degree at the University of Toronto where she is a student of James Parker, the renowned pianist of Canada’s premiere chamber music ensemble the Gryphon Trio.
Ng will be playing music of Beethoven; his Piano Sonata no 8 known as the Pathetique Sonata, and Chopin’s Ballade No.1.
“Chopin for me…is deeply emotional; it’s not just surface level. At first it was difficult to navigate because I’m still struggling to figure out my emotions myself, as a young person. This is the first Chopin that I feel like I have finally grasped the emotional complexity of it…so I’m really proud of myself for that,” says Ng.
Ng is thrilled to be the winner of the $2500 WMC scholarship, and was kind of surprised to be a winner considering her age. “I was rather surprised since I knew I was one of the youngest.”
Ng is one of six stellar up and coming Manitoba musicians who will be performing on Wednesday, December 28th at 7:30 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. This is going to be an amazing concert that will showcase the best in young Manitoba musicians.
