David Liew, 17, has been studying piano under Mr. Donald Denegar since the age of five. Under the tutelage of Mr. Denegar, David gave his first solo recital at age ten. Most recently, he was invited to play an hour-long solo program at Trilogy at Redmond Ridge. He has also performed in multiple masterclasses, most notably for Dr. Nelita True of the Eastman School of Music at the Washington State Music Teacher Association’s annual conference. David’s senior recital is especially interesting in that it covers a wide range of musical styles and composers, from Bach and Beethoven to Lecuona and Ginastera. David has also studied music theory with Mr. Denegar. In addition to piano, David is a cellist in the Evergreen Philharmonic. Outside of music, David is heavily involved in leadership and community service work. He also enjoys playing tennis and backpacking. David will graduate summa cum laude from Skyline High School and receive his IB Diploma in June. In the fall, David will attend the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business to study Finance and Management.
