A rigged piano competition in TexasNews
The jury at this week’s Weatherford College piano competition were Steven Spooner, Jose Mendez, and Carol Leone.
First prize went to Xinyue Wang of the Eastman School.
Joint second were Tian Tang (a student of Jose Mendez) and Seonghun Jeong (a student of Carol Leone).
Fair, or what?
In addition, the top prize was meanly reduced from $2,400 to $2,000 and the second from $1,200 to $1,000.
Competitors went away crying foul (in emails to slippedisc.com).
