The competition was to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth, organized for the first time by the Chopin Society (Singapore) and the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. Competitors were required to play Chopin's pieces for a fixed period according to their age.

This competition has attracted 140 candidates from 15 countries such as China, Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore itself.

Congratulations Hoang, and I'm sure you'd inspire all the youths out there, and me too. =)
