Radnor Sisters Team Up for Carnegie Hall Debut
Radnor Middle School 7th-grader Graci Gill and Wayne Elementary School 4th-grader Ella Gill made their Carnegie Hall debut on February 6 in the Elite International Music Competition Winners Recital at Weill Recital Hall.
Graci and Ella received an invitation to participate in the recital after they successfully auditioned and won second place in the Elite International Music Competition in December.
Their audition piece was a violin duet titled Three Little Symphonies, Op .109 (by C. Dancla) and their mother, Heather Gill, accompanied them on piano.
Graci and Ella were joined at the Winners Recital by students from across the United States, as well as musicians from Russia, Canada, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, China and South Korea.
Graci is in the RMS 7th grade orchestra, advanced ensemble, concert band, chorus and is in the upcoming spring musical production of Matilda, Jr. She has been playing piano and violin since she was four years old and began playing flute three years ago. Ella is in the WES 4th grade orchestra and chorus. She has been playing both piano and violin since age four. Both Graci and Ella have also performed in various musicals at Wolf Performing Arts Center and Wayne Art Center concerts.
