Madison Suh, a Highlands Ranch Stem School seventh-grader who lives in Centennial, will represent Colorado after winning the MTNA Junior Piano competition in October. The next step is the MTNA West Central Regional Junior Piano Competition.

Madison earned the win after performing Sonata in E minor by Franz Joseph Haydn, Rondo Capriccioso by Felix Mendelssohn and Romeo & Juliet(Mercutio) by Sergei Prokofiev, totaling 20 min. She has played the piano since she was 4 years old and is a student of Jasmine Lee Steadman Piano Studio.

In addition to winning this competition and numerous other awards, Madison was the semifinalist at the Kaufman Center International Youth Piano Competition in New York in 2017 and a gold medalist at the International Keyboard Odyssiad & Festival Competition in Fort Collins in 2017.

Madison was the featured pianist with the National Repertory Orchestra in 2015 and 2016 as well as the featured pianist with Littleton Symphony Orchestra when she was only 7-years-old.

Madison hopes to win the regional division competition in December and to go on to the National Finals in Spokane, Washington, in March. National finalists will be announced in mid-January.
