Student Competes In International Piano Competition
Kangai “Newnew” Hong at the piano
Kangai Hong, better known to Moore County friends as Newnew, recently competed in the 2021 Carmel Klavier International Piano Competition for Young Artists, winning an honorable mention in the intermediate A2 group.
Newnew says that she was both excited and nervous during the competition, which was done remotely.
I did three pieces for each video, she says.
Her uncle, Stuart Schulte, adds that they had to use a special app.
It allowed three tries for each piece, he says. You couldnt keep doing it over, for example, if the dog barked.
We went over to Sandhills to my teachers studio where it was quiet, says Newnew.
The ONeal School student was first taught piano at the age of 5 by her mother, Sandy Chen.
Newnew came to the U.S. with her mother when she was 4 to see Disney World and visit her aunt, Hong, says Schulte. She decided at a very young age that she wanted to study here and live with us while in school.
According to Schulte, the Episcopal Day School, which was under the direction of Tom Brereton and Jill Connett at the time, made special arrangements to have her as their first F-1 foreign student in 2017 as a third-grader.
She arrived speaking little English, but was fluent by fourth grade, he says.
Born July 15, 2009, in Zhuhai, China, she is also the daughter of Henry Hong.
I practice three hours on weekdays in the summer, most of the time, Newnew says. When Im in school, its usually two hours.
