The board commented,
"Beautiful performance! Understands the phrasing well and I really like how you really breathe between phrases/sections."
Jury included pianists such as Dr. Yoon-Wha Roh and Dr. Hyun Ju Jang.
Special thanks to Ms. Rina Akaboshi for her gem-words of pianism and guidance.
She kindly tweeted about this exciting news, and it meant a lot to us.
She's one of the most popular and respected pianists in Japan,
and is Calvin's teacher's (Maya Mikimoto's) current teacher.
