Adam Wenzel is a grade 10 student at M.E. Lazerte High School. He began playing piano when he was 5 years old and has been studying with Cameron Watson since he was 9. Adam currently plays tuba in his school’s concert band, and trombone in the school’s jazz band, but his first love remains the piano. Adam enjoys sports and plays football and rugby for his school team. Adam has previously competed in local and provincial festivals, winning a number of scholarships and awards. His goal is to attend the Glenn Gould School of Music in Toronto and pursue a career in piano performance. Adam is excited to perform alongside the Edmonton Youth Orchestra.

Evan Yin is a high school senior at Old Scona Academic. Having studied with Sarah Ho, Professor Sandra Munn, and currently David Tutt, he is an accomplished pianist and piano teacher, performing at several concerts and competing at the local, provincial, and national level. 


First becoming a Canadian Music Competition (CMC) national scholarship winner in 2013, Evan also placed second in the country for piano performance in 2022. He has placed and won scholarships in various competitions in both piano performance as well as composition, including the Edmonton Music and Speech Arts Festival, the Alberta Provincial Music Festival, the Canada West Performing Arts Festival, and the 37th and 41st Northern Alberta Concerto Competitions. 


A devoted advocate of music performance and appreciation, Evan now spends much of his musical career running Music Spirit Society, an organization dedicated to connecting young musicians across Alberta to learning resources and performance opportunities.
