Our whole families including the grandparents in China are in big joy of Emily’s winning an Honorable Mention at a World Piano Competition. At this moment I really want to express our gratefulness to you. It was you who gave Emily such a precious opportunity to play on that prestigious stage. It was you who advanced Emily to perform piano on a totally different level from before. It was you who spent so much extra time on Emily’s preparation for this competition. Thank you!
It was such an experience that neither Emily nor I would ever forget. Even though she did not show her best performance, we are all very happy for her to get what she deserved. It is also exciting news that Emily could go to Carnegie Hall to play.
