‘Prizewinning Students Are Going To Play Piano In New York’. Rafael Kyrychenco (12) and Alina Tarabana (11) both won 2nd prize in the competition of ‘Bradshaw & Buono’, an international contest. Rafael, who competed in the section for 12 – 14 year olds, is a student in the Professional School of Arts on Madeira, was then invited to participate in a concert in New York in December. Alina also studies in the same place, and won second prize, but has not yet received her invitation. She competed in the section for 4 to 11 year olds. Both have previously won awards at national and international levels.
It’s the second Blue Marlin Fishing Championship in June (12th – 14th), and a record participation is expected. The Spanish are expected to field 10 boats, with others from Madeira, Portugal, The Azores, England, Germany, and the United States. The base and support will be provided at the Porto de Recreio da Calheta. RECORD ATTENDANCE IS GUARANTEED – either the record highest or the record lowest, as it’s only the second edition of the contest. OK, I admit it could also be the equal highest / lowest, before someone pulls me up.
