ECU senior Caroline Cox of Southern Pines won top honors at the Music Teachers National Association Young Artist String Competition.

Cox, 21, is a double performance major in violin and piano, studying violin with Ara Gregorian and piano with Keiko Sekino. Cox served as concertmaster of the ECU Symphony for three years and has performed alongside such artists as Robert McDonald in the Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival at ECU. In 2011, she was chosen to perform Sibelius’ Violin Concerto with the Raleigh and Durham Symphonies.

The MTNA Young Artist Performance Competition took place March 26, during the 2012 MTNA National Conference in New York City. As a national competition winner, Cox received $3,000, provided by the MTNA Foundation Fund.

The three-tiered MTNA competitions begin at the state level. First-place winners of each state’s competition advance to a division competition. Division winners compete in the national finals.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    of 2D figures that can store thousands of digits that translate information. Otherwise, you need to use
    driver file to install it. It stymies innovation and creates
    a hostile climate for businesses and individual taxpayers alike.
