After winning a string of competitions, a 6-year-old pianist from Connecticut has a gig musicians of any age would envy—on April 18, May 1 and May 16 the first-grader is playing Carnegie Hall. Her approach isn't fancy ("I like when my fingers move around and I like to make ... happy songs or sad songs. It's really fun,” Clara Tu told NBC) but she does have a piano teacher mom on her side, who started instructing her before she even turned four. Tu's mother is proud of piano prodigy daughter, who's already out-achieved her. "That is my dream too," Felicia Zhang said of the opportunity to perform in the historic space, "My dream hasn't come true yet.” Video preview below.
