Victoria-born violinist Timothy Chooi (24) has won first prize at the American Schadt String Competition in Allentown, United States.

The award comes with a purse of $8,000 and includes a solo performance with the Allentown Symphony.

Second prize went to Warsaw-born violinist Ania Filochowska ($2,500), and third prize to Hamilton Ontario’s Hannah Cho ($1,500).

The American Schadt String Competition is open to violinists, cellists and classical guitarists aged 18-30, who are living within the United States. Previous winners include VC Young Artists Zeyu Victor Li and Ji-Won Song.
