Vừa rồi MiNi band đã trải qua một cuộc thi tài năng năng khiếu của Orange County Public School và đã được ban giám khảo chọn vào trong 18 tiết mục vô final của OCPS Top Talent show (tất cả là 128 tiết muc). Đây cũng là một Điểm son cho các em học sinh Viet Nam nói chung và MiNi Band nói riêng, để khích lệ và động viên cho các em MiNi Band trong cuộc thi Final sắp tới sẽ tổ chức vào ngày 10 tháng 5, 2014 tai Orange County Convention Center Linda Chapin Theatre. Vậy xin mời quý anh chị em cùng bà con đến tham dự và ủng hộ cho MiNi band. Kèm theo sau đây là thơ của một người talent Scout khi họ xem MiNi band ở audition vừa qua, và thư thông báo trúng tuyển của OCPS. Rất cám ơn sự ủng hộ của quý vị.
Hi Mimi and Phillip!
> I'm really glad you got back to me!
> All I can say was I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the MiniBand's performance this last weekend. Very rarely do I see children of that age with full instrumental arrangements and original tracks. I honestly was dumbfounded by the skill and proficiency of the band, Particularly that of the drummer, she was just absolutely incredible. Once they finished, i was trying to find you but i'm pretty sure you were helping with the moving of all the instruments and equipment.
> Let me tell you a little bit about what I do and what the World Championships is before I get into anything else.
> The World Championship of Performing Arts is a once a year competition/event packed with industry professionals in Downtown LA with over 50 countries and thousands of contestants from all over the world that participate and vie for the gold, silver and bronze medal in an array of performing arts categories and age groups. I am an official talent scout for Team USA and Team Canada (I have also scouted for Team Brazil, Team Thailand, and Team Italy), and my job is to go to talent competitions (Such as the top talent auditions the previous weekend) and find talent who i believe would be qualified to represent Their nationalities at the World Championships of Performing Arts In LA.
> I would perhaps like to meet with you in person and talk about this, since I am very interested in having MiniBand represent Team USA or Team Vietnam. I feel that this is a World class act and would attract MASSIVE attention if they were to attend the World Championships. It's quite honestly like nothing I've ever seen before and I think what you have is something very special.
