Sarah Kim accepted into the Paris Conservatoire

Our most recent organist 'export', Sarah Kim, yesterday fought off the remaining opposition (a graduate of the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest) to secure the only place on offer in the prestigious concert artist training program (Cycle de Perfectionnement) at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse in Paris. Having successfully progressed through the first round on Monday (a closed jury recital), yesterday's second round took the form of a public play-off between the two remaining contestants, who each presented a 1-1/2 hour recital.

Sarah commences studies immediately with Olivier Latry, organist of Notre Dame Cathedral. The Cycle de Perfectionnement is a two year programme for elite musicians, designed to develop their skills as concert artists to the highest possible levels. Students are subjected to a gruelling programme of public recitals, competitions and concerto performances.

Sarah graduated from Sydney Conservatorium of Music in April this year with first class Honours and the University medal. Her studies in Paris have been made possible by a University of Sydney travelling scholarship valued at $20,000 p.a.
