MIAMI — Archbishop Curley Notre Dame Prep senior Celestyn Angot has been awarded the Mildred E. Allen Memorial Piano Scholarship, presented to the top performer in the grades 9-10 piano performance category as part of the National Piano Guild auditions.
Angot is an honor roll student who has studied piano for 11 years. In 2008 she received a gold medal in the Monsignor Edward Pace High School Academic Olympics in piano and theory. She also received the Paderewski Gold Medal following the 2011 National Piano Guild auditions. She earned a Diploma in Social Music in 2011 and High School Diploma (in music) in 2012, and has been selected three times to perform in the Chopin Foundation Concert for Young Pianists.
At ACND, Celestyn is a member of her school choir “The Knightingales” and a member of the drama club, playing in past school productions the role of Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast and Princess Amneris in Aida. She is the president of the National Honor Society, vice-president of the Student Council and plays varsity volleyball.
“Celestyn has always been a great student and hard worker and is in the top of her class,” said ACND Principal Douglas Romanik. “She is a great performer whether it be piano or vocal. Celestyn is a great example of ACND’s mission to educate the whole person: in the arts, athletics, academics and spiritual.”
Angot, who will graduate in May, plans to pursue a medical career and minor in music.
