MADISON, NJ - Leonid Nediak, 11 year old piano prodigy will appear for the first time in the United States at the Thursday Morning Club’s Madison Community House on Friday, March 27.  

When Nediak, a native of Kingston, Canada, was nine years old, he entered the Canadian Music Competition which took place in Sherbrooke, Que.  He performed in the nine year old group and attained a score of 99.  Since this was the highest score of all between the ages of seven and ten, he was named the overall winner in that age range.  He won by  playing Chopin’s Concerto No. 1, 1st Movement.  

His performance reportedly brought some to tears. Judge Louise Bessette was impressed that a nine year old would play such a Chopin piece because it is so long and difficult.
