Joshua Han on stage at the 2014 McDonald's Sydney Eisteddfod
Although Joshua Han only celebrated his twelfth birthday last October, he has already etched his name in Sydney Eisteddfod history as one of the most successful piano prodigies ever.
Since making his first solo appearance at Sydney Eisteddfod in 2009, Joshua has won 14 gold medals in a variety of events, including the prestigious Kawai Piano Award (Any Age) that is coveted by pianists more than twice his age. In 2013, with his elder brother Oscar, Joshua endeared himself to the heart of the nation as a grand finalist in the television talent show Australia’s Got Talent. In Germany last year, he competed in the prestigious Ettlingen International Piano Competition and won the junior category with highest mark ever recorded in a competition that includes such luminaries as Lang Lang and Yu Ja Wang among its previous winners.
This year, Joshua has already added another major award to his laurels by winning the under 16 section of the Denmark Aarhus International Piano Competition. Sydney Eisteddfod enjoys nothing more than promoting the ongoing success of its champions and congratulates Joshua on his latest victory.
