Four pianists from Delta were recognized and rewarded at the Burnaby Clef Society’s Annual Honour Recital.

Stori Gifford, a six-year-old student studying with teacher Karina Pangilinan, received first place in her preliminary festival with her rendition of “Chimes.”

Ella Gonzales, Elise Levangie and Summer Tiuseco joined together as a six-hands trio and won first place in the Junior Ensemble category for “Three’s a Crowd Rag” by Joyce Grill.

The four pianists all study piano at Twilight Sound Studios in North Delta, where they study under sisters Karina, Kazandra, Krystyna, and Klaryssa Pangilinan.

At the studio, multi-piano ensemble sessions are taught by Angela Kaiser, mother of the four sisters.
