On July 13, 2019, McAuliffe students braved the heat to compete at the Diamond Bar Performing Arts Contest (DBPAC). DBPAC is a two-day event where students throughout Southern California display their musical talents.
McAuliffe musicians impressed the judges! The talented team of Kiera Wong and LeAnn Lee took 3rd place in the piano duet category. They performed ‘In a Boat’ by Claude DeBussy. As individual contestants, both LeAnn Lee and Kiera Wong placed 3rd in their respective piano solos. A total of four medals were brought back to Seal Beach.
These gifted musicians will again display their talents at the 57th Southwestern Youth Music Festival (SYMF). This competition will take place at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University of Long Beach later this month.
