The Present of the Past
Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2, Mvt 1

Yi Fei Heng, a senior at West Lafayette High School, is thrilled to have this experience to play with the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra. She has been playing piano for thirteen years, since the age of five. She currently studies with Mary Heller. Yi Fei is the two time winner of the Hoosier Auditions District Competition as well as the two time winner of the IMTA Instrumental Competition. She was also a soloist with the Wabash Valley Youth Symphony last year.

In addition to piano, Yi Fei has been playing cello since the fourth grade and enjoys playing the cello in her school’s orchestra and symphony. Outside of music, Yi Fei participates in Best Buddies, track, and debate.

Yi Fei would like to thank her family for their never ceasing support and encouragement, and her friends for always being by her side. She would also like to thank Mary Heller for inspiring her and fostering her love of the piano and music. Most of all, she gives thanks to God for this opportunity and for His abundant blessings.
