The competition took place at various locations around Auckland from 12 - 20 January and involved Jaime competing with fellow aspiring young pianists from around New Zealand and China.  

"Jaime’s prize was to perform with the New Zealand Chamber Orchestra at the Gala Concert in Mount Eden on Saturday 19 January,” says Music Teacher Chris Artley. “This was a tremendous opportunity and a huge accomplishment for such a young performer.”
