by Taylor Zukcek, MTHS Talon
Senior Gabby Balkius auditioned and placed first in the Elite International Music Competition and won the honor of performing solo at Carnegie Hall in March.
"She has worked very hard to get to this point and we are very proud of her," said music teacher Sarah Culp.
"Gabby has always been a wonderfully mature and calm performer," Culp explained. "She is not only a phenomenal musician, but a kind and caring soul. She expresses her inner beauty when she plays and I am honored to have been her teacher for the last four years."
Congratulations to Gabby for her amazing accomplishment!
