The Edmonton Chapter of the Canadian Music Competition would like to congratulate local pianist and nine time CMC National Finalist Louisa Lu for receiving a Gold Medal for having the highest mark in all of Alberta for the third consecutive year. At the age of 15, she has won the 2013 Gold Medal for Grade 10 Violin Examinations for The Royal Conservatory of Music. This is her third time winning the Gold medal for RCM (Grade 8 Violin Gold Medal 2011, Grade 9 Violin Gold Medal 2012, Grade 10 Violin Gold Medal 2013).
Louisa has received the degree of LRCM in Piano Performance at the age of 14.
