Final semester, Foundation in Music
The Indonesia Piano Competition, organised by Rhapsodie bookstore Jakarta, was held in Medan on April 27th 2013. Participants of the competition came from various cities around Indonesia. The members of the adjudicating panel were lecturers from Universitas Pelita Harapan’s Faculty of Music in Jakarta — Mr Firdy Salim and Mr Alfred Rony Situmorang.
Here is Meldy’s account of her experience in the competition:
I am very happy and honored to obtain the 2nd rank for Free Selection D category in this competition. Since this competition is a national-level competition, my competitors were quite tough. Nevertheless, this competition gave me another platform to perform and I like the experience a lot. I would like to thank my parents for their support, not forgetting my teachers for their dedication.
