This past June, while our students navigated new internships, embarked on family trips, and settled into summer routines, OC Junior Isabel Cardenes graced a stage at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, NC for the 23rd American Harp Society, Inc. National Competition.
Despite a wealth of talented contestants up to age 30, Isabel made a 3rd place win in her division look effortless. In addition to this impressive honor, she was awarded $500 in prize money. Enjoy a portion of her beautiful performance in the video below. Brava, Isabel!
