TORONTO — A 13 year-old violinist from Vaughan, Ont. will soon perform at one the most prestigious concert venues in the world—Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Lincoln Haggart-Ives has been chosen to perform in front of hundreds this June after his mother entered him in the American Protege Music Competition.
“I couldn’t believe it, I thought I was dreaming,” Lincoln Haggart-Ives said.
The competition is open to children and adults from around the world and participants are required to submit an audition video.
The boy’s mother learned about the competition from a neighbour and immediately submitted a video.
“We got world last week that he placed as one of the winners,” Marie Haggart said. “I’m very proud.”
