Several Franklin Regional students will take part in the 2018 Young Artists Competition Winners Recital, set for Sunday, Feb. 11, at Seton Hill University.

On Feb. 4, 15 finalists competed for cash prizes and a chance to perform at the recital.

Among the winners and performers in the Level I (up to grade 9) and Level II (grades 10 to 12) categories:

• Hanna Yan: First place, Level I piano (Franklin Regional Senior High School)

• Max Wang: Second place, Level I piano (FRSHS)

• Hannah Zheng: Thrird place, Level I piano (FR Middle School)

• Clare McCarthy: Third place tie, Level II flute (FRSHS)

• Lauren DeLuca: Honorable mention, Level II flute (FRSHS)

• Ami Shaw: Honorable mention, Level II flute (FRSHS)

Along with the rest of the competition winners, they will present a recital of pieces chosen by the judges from their audition programs.

The Westmoreland Symphony's Young Artist Competition has been in existence since the 1980s. In 2002, its format was changed from a concerto competition to a solo competition. It is now open to students who reside or take their private music lessons in Westmoreland or Fayette Counties.

The recital will be at 3 p.m. Feb. 11 at the university's Performing Arts Center, 100 Harrison Avenue in Greensburg.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
