After 11 days of intense competition from 389 musicians, ranging from 8 to 28 years old, showing their musical skills on instruments such as gu zheng (Chinese zither), di zi (Chinese flute) and pipa (Chinese lute), the National Arts Council is pleased to announce the winners of 2012 National Chinese Music Competition.The top three winners of each category received trophies and cash prizes ranging from $200 to $4500.

After the Prize Presentation Ceremony, it's now the Second- half of the performance. 

Chen Xinyu who won the first prize in PIPA Junior Category is only at the age of 8 years old. Was once a PIPA player before and knowing that PIPA is not that light at all, therefore I'm greatly impressed by this young and talented girl who can hold it so firmly and able to produce such a wonderful music.
