"these pieces also earned Michelle both the Audience Prize, particularly, considering the audience for course, for the thrilling piece from Tannhäuser for which the audience showed its appreciation warmly and loudly, as well as the Second Prize.  The strength of her performance of the extract from the Menotti brought both audience and judges to tears."
