A dream came true for 18-year-old violinist Wendy Kong when she was named winner of the prestigious Sydney Eisteddfod NSW Drs Orchestra Instrumental Scholarship for 2014 on August 17.
Wendy, who began playing the violin at the age of six, is no stranger to the Sydney Eisteddfod platform. She bowed into the competition in 2007 and immediately established herself as a rising talent by winning the Violin Solo (12/u). The following year, she confirmed her promise by finishing third in the Violin Solo (25/u), and since then she has won numerous awards, not only at Sydney Eisteddfod, but also in other competitions.
Wendy now has her heart set on furthering her studies in the United States, and applauding her recent victory, Sydney Eisteddfod wishes her every success as she continues her journey in the world of music.
The Sydney Eisteddfod NSW Drs Orchestra Instrumental Scholarship was broadcast on Fine Music 102.5 FM on October 1, 2014.
