WACO (March 18, 2013)—Twins Haeun and Hayoung Moon, who are sixth graders at the Midway ISD’s River Valley Intermediate School, will perform in a recital Saturday at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
The twins won first place in their age division in the American Protégé International Concerto Competition, which attracted a large field of applicants from the U.S. and abroad, the school district said.
Haeun will play the 3rd movement of Kabalevsky's Violin Concerto in C Major Op. 48, and Hayoung will play the 3rd movement of Haydn's Concerto in C Major for Cello, the district said.
Hayoung will also perform this month as a soloist with the Houston Civic Symphony after winning a competition in Houston, the district said.
