New Hyde Park Memorial High School junior Leilani Lee performed solo piano during the American Protégé Winter Gala Concert at Carnegie Hall on Dec. 12.
Lee submitted a video of her solo performance to the American Protégé International Piano and Strings Competition, which earned her the opportunity to perform at the gala concert. She currently attends the Manhattan School of Music’s pre-college program where she studies under concert pianist Ubaldo Diaz-Acosta. Lee has participated in a variety of recitals at different venues, including local churches, schools and Flushing Town Hall.
