Kelsey is a Gold Prizes Winner of the 2022-23 International Music & Art Society 9th Annual Talented Young Musician Olympia competition and finalist in the Young Maestro International Competition, through which she had the honor of performing at Carnegie Hall. Kelsey spent last summer at Interlochen Center for the Arts, and she has participated in All County and LISFA music festivals. She also serves as concert master of her school orchestra.
