Freshman becomes Overture finalist

Freshman Keliang Yao will compete in the Overture finals at the Aronoff Center on March 12, playing piano in the instrumental category. “All categories are competitive but making it this far as a freshman in this category is rare. She is the real deal,” Lower, Middle, and Upper School instrumental music teacher John Rising said. The Overture Awards competition is the area’s largest solo arts competition and offers awards in six artistic disciplines, including creative writing, dance, instrumental music, theater, visual art, and vocal music. Congrats, Keliang!
