He also won first place in the Asian American Music Society Competition and the American Protégé Competition at Carnegie Hall. He attends The Langley School and began playing the piano on his sister’s keyboard when he was two years old.

The event is the product of a partnership between Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at George Mason University and RCC.  All ages are welcome to the free event.

    A 12 year-old attends Langley High School? Really? Most 12 year-olds are in 6th or 7th grade. Funny.. his From the Top bio says he attends the Langley School. https://www.fromthetop.org/musician/oscar-paz-suaznabar/

    • Conservative Senior

      The Langley School is private & in McLean….preschool thru 8th grade.

    And it’s “Carnegie.”

    • Drip

      According to Reston Now it’s “Carnie Hall.” So if you get to Carnegie Hall by “practice, practice, practice,” what does it take to get to Carnie Hall? Bad enough she got his school wrong. Kind of stinks to be really good and accomplished and the local news site completely botches the write up.

    • Urban legend

      After the old man was done with Carnegie Hall and sold it, people simply switched to calling it Carnie.

      Its a New York thingie.

  • Willie Reston

    This offends Mike M and Constitutionalist.

    • Billy

      You’re projecting

    • Mike M

      Do you really have to fabricate my thoughts and words to make yourself feel superior? Ever heard of fake news?

    • The Constitutionalist

      Nope, sorry. I’m flatted that you never stop think about me, but I’m currently in a relationship so you’ll have to wait your turn.

  • Amy Sue

    ok, I haven’t been one to complain about the errors on Reston Now. But producing a press release that says an accomplished young pianist has played at Carnie Hall is just not acceptable. I’m sure this kid would love to keep the press release for his scrapbook (or whatever kids have nowadays). Couldn’t Reston Now at least correct the misspelling so it was a professional news source that highlighted the kid’s accomplishments?
