From Paul DeckThose of you young folks who find yourself "progressing well" on the violin after a couple of years in a Suzuki program and wondering if there's a professional career in your future -- watch this boy, Kevin Zhu, and the other junior finalists. They're your competition.

From Joyce LinI was most impressed by Soo-Been Lee. Her "Entranced with Mountain Scenery" (She really gets Chinese music) and Wieniawski Variations are amazing!!!
