Gu named GHS concerto competition winner

Each year the Guilderland High School Music Department holds a concerto competition. With so many talented students throughout the department the choice is difficult and highly competitive. The winner of this competition gains the privilege of a spring solo performance with one of the large ensembles.

This year the music department is pleased to announce that junior James Gu, son of Shuang Liu and Subin Gu of Schenectady, won the 2018 competition.

To win the competition, James played an impressive piano performance of the Chopin Fantasy Impromptu. He will be a solo performer at the May 3 high school spring concert and will play Chopin's Ballade 1 in G Minor, Opus 23. In addition to his pianistic abilities, James is also a bassoonist performing in the GHS Wind Ensemble and the Empire State Youth Orchestra.

Congratulations to James and the high school music teachers for this recognition of hard work, musicality and dedication.
