Connecticut girl, 3, to play at Carnegie Hall music competition: ‘Among the youngest’

A 3-year-old pianist is going to make her Carnegie Hall debut in the fall of 2021.

Brigitte Xie has been learning how to play the piano in the last six months, and now she is preparing for her first recital at the historic music hall, according to FOX 5 NY.

The young Ridgefield, Connecticut, resident won first place in the Elite International Music Competition earlier this year, which earned her a performance spot in the American Protégé International Music Talent Competition.

This international talent competition will take place on Nov. 22 in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, a spokesperson for the 130-year-old venue told Fox News.

While it’s not clear whether Brigitte is the youngest musician to grace the stage, the hall’s spokesperson says she is certainly “among the youngest.”

“We don’t have complete information on the ages of everyone who has played at Carnegie Hall and also know that young children have been among those who have appeared in in the past,” Carnegie Hall’s spokesperson wrote to Fox News via email.
