A Danbury fifth grader from King Street Intermediate School was chosen to play in February on New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall stage. Lucia Trudo competed in the Crescendo International Music Competition in December. She's been playing the piano for five years and practices at least an hour a day and takes weekly piano lessons. The nonprofit youth music competition for musicians ages five through 22 held annually since 2007 through the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. The competition is open to all instrumentalists (piano, strings and winds), vocalists, duets and ensembles. Trudo plays in the worship band at the children’s service at Walnut Hill Community Church in Bethel.
