NATOMA -- Chen Xinyi, a junior at Natoma High School, traveled to Tabor College in Hillsboro for the State Piano Contest in Feburary. She performed a Mozart piano sonata by memory and received a No. 1 rating.
The piano judge wrote inspiring praise to the young pianist: "A beautiful and effective performance. You are a fine Mozart performer paying attention to details with colors clearly presented."
Chen is a foreign exchange student from China. She will perform her solo with other instrumental and vocal performers at the Lions Club pancake supper from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday at Natoma Community Center. The annual event also will include Bob Prockish flipping flapjacks. Donations will underwrite tuition for students participating in the state Lion's Club band camp and other youth-related scholarships for Boys State and the Highway Patrol Cadet Academy.
