Freshman performs in Carnegie Hall

Scott Alex Lavine was a second place winner of the American Protégé International Strings and Piano Competition in the College Students and Professional Musicians division. As a result, he was invited to make his Carnegie Hall debut in Weill Recital Hall in a winners’ recital on April 22.


“It was everything I had hoped for, plus more,” he said. “The acoustics were amazing and it was a wonderful experience. It went by so fast.”


The EC Scholar and freshman cellist was invited to attend three music festivals this summer where he will take lessons, participate in masterclasses and concertize. Internationally, he’ll attend Orford Music, located east of Montreal and north of the Vermont border in Quebec, Canada, and the Zodiac Music Academy and Festival in Côte d’Azur, France, where he will perform in chamber settings on tour in Nice and Cannes. Domestically, he’ll attend the Summit Music Festival at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY.
