Lucius Liu ’26 Receives Second Prize in the J.Y. Park Piano Competition and Performs Solo Recital at RCDS

Sophomore Lucius Liu ended the school year with two exciting musical milestones. He received second prize in the senior division of the J.Y. Park Piano Competition in Westport, CT, and performed a full-length solo piano recital on campus as a culmination of his year-long project in Advanced Topics in Music.

The J.Y. Park Piano Competition is hosted by the JUMY Foundation, which promotes the healthy development of younger generations and believes that music and art education are essential to its purpose.

The on-campus recital, which was held on May 23 in the Performing Arts Center auditorium, featured a challenging repertoire that showcased Lucius’s musical range and skillful piano technique. Alongside his piano teacher and his family, Lucius thanked Mary Marcell, RCDS Music Department Chair, for her support throughout the year and her integral role in making the recital happen.
