Monty Guo, along with his accompanist Verdy Guo (which so happens to be his brother! and who is also selected to be a piano soloist in 2015 Encore) was selected to perform on the violin at the annual Encore concert of the state's finest HSC music students at the Sydney Opera house on February 18th 2019. Monty was the only solo violinist selected from about 6000 students who studied HSC music courses. Encore "is a program of outstanding performances and compositions by students from the HSC Music examinations. It is held annually at the Sydney Opera House" and is run by the NSW Educations Standards Authority (NESA).
