A 12-year-old New Brunswick musician will have the unique opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Marysol Boisvert of Richibucto won third place in the American Protégé International Talent competition.

Talented musicians from 12 countries, including the United States, Australia, Azerbaijan, Canada, Costa Rica, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand.

“I play the viola, the instrument I fell in love with. I like the sound and I also like the fact that it’s not a well-known instrument,” Boisvert said of her favorite instrument, which she plays as a member of Sistema New Brunswick and the ‘Moncton Youth Orchestra.

“It was Marysol’s dream to play a musical instrument and when she started her 4th year at École Communautaire de Soleil Levant, she had the opportunity to join Sistema NB and she never didn’t look back. Marysol’s discipline, passion and dynamism give her the chance to flourish in the world of music,” explained Anne Boisvert, Marysol’s mother.

She says the hardest part of preparing for the application was being consistent with practices and balancing school work.

Dates are not yet confirmed for his trip to New York, as they have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boisvert will perform at Carnegie Hall in front of approximately 400 people.

Ken MacLeod, President and CEO of the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra and Sistema NB, added, “We are thrilled for Marysol and thrilled that Sistema New Brunswick is helping her achieve her dream. We excel when our students excel at reaching their full potential in learning and performing orchestral music. »
