CHS Sophomore Competes in Piano Tournaments

CHS sophomore Josh Duke took home first and third places in piano competitions held earlier this month.

On April 5, Duke took first place in the Level III Piano Rally held at the LSU School of Music. His near-perfect score of 99.5 in his performances of piano sonatas by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Scriabin, combined with his knowledge of music theory, qualified him for the State Rally competition, which will be held in June.

Duke then proceeded to place third overall in the Allen Fleming competition held at the LSU School of Music on April 12.
