Peter Lim Places in Rockville Competition for Solo Piano and Solo Strings
SALISBURY, MD---Peter Lim, a student studying piano through Salisbury University’s PRESTO performing arts outreach program, recently placed in the Rockville Competition for Solo Piano and Solo Strings.
Lim, a junior at James M. Bennett High School, was one of 16 students selected from 435 entrants throughout Maryland to perform at the competition’s Winners Recital on Friday, May 6, at Montgomery College in Rockville, MD.
Upon coming to the U.S. from his native South Korea, Lim had difficulty finding a teacher to continue his piano studies. He joined the Salisbury Youth Orchestra (SYO), directed by Dr. Jeffrey Schoyen of SU’s Music, Theatre and Dance Department, who introduced him to PRESTO.
Through the program, he studies with Dr. Linda Cockey, also of the Music, Theatre and Dance Department. Private donors have helped fund his lessons.
Through PRESTO, students of all ages and abilities take music and theatre classes with SU faculty and students, and area musicians and performers. A limited schedule is offered in the summer, and full classes resume next fall.
