Markus represented Coquitlam at the Performing Arts BC Provincial Festival in Fort St. John for the Senior Level age group and won First Place.
In June he completed the ARCT level Piano Performance examination and received the outstanding mark of 96% for which he was awarded the Gold Medal from the Royal Conservatory- the highest mark in Canada.

During the summer, Markus participated in the Courtney music program under Professor Corey Hamm where he learned and performed Quintet #1 by Dohnanyi, while in August, Markus travelled to beautiful Revelstoke and studied with Professor Moroz. Here, he performed the Trio in B flat major, by Beethoven.

Markus was asked to represent the Tri-Cities/Maple Ridge branch of the Registered Music Teachers in their prestigious BC Piano competition in September. The competition took place in front of over 100 teachers and professors and featured some of the top young pianists in the province. Markus placed First and will represent BC at the Music Teachers National Association Conference in Baltimore Maryland in March 2017, competing in the Canadian National Piano Competition with renowned pianist Leon Fleisher adjudicating.

Markus plans to study music with a focus on Piano Performance when he enters University in September of 2017.

Congratulations and best wishes, Markus.
