EDISON, NJ - Camila Fang of Edison, a sophomore at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison, felt a wide range of emotions during her solo cello concert at Carnegie Hall on May 6. There was a huge sense of pride and excitement, some nerves and a wonderful feeling of accomplishment as the talented W+H sophomore completed her piece along with other winners of the Annual Golden Key Music Festival Competition.

Camila performed Johann Sebastian Bach’s Air in G, the same piece she played at the annual W+H Spring Music Recital at the Berry Performing Arts Center in April. After many months of hard work at the Mason Gross School of Arts at Rutgers University under the watchful eye of renowned cellist Dr. Hyogin Lee and a successful audition at Westminster Conservatory in Princeton, Camila earned the invitation to play at Carnegie Hall.

“When I arrived at Carnegie Hall, I was so excited,” Camila said. “I felt like the hours I spend practicing every week were finally creating something tangible for me to display my skills. I have learned so much from this competition and this piece. While a large part of music performance is getting the notes and rhythm right, adding emotion and dynamics elevates it to a whole new level. I hope to participate in this competition again next year, among others.”

The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison is Central Jersey’s premier PreK-12 independent school. The campus is located at 1295 Inman Avenue in North Edison, near the Scotch Plains border and just five miles from downtown Westfield.
