Mlada hrvatska violinistica Carolina Blašković proglašena je u New Yorku pobjednicom prestižnog međunarodnog pijanističkog i violinističkog natjecanja ‘American Protege International Piano/Strings Competition 2016.’, kao najmlađa od ukupno 62 natjecatelja u kategoriji ‘studenti-profesionalci’ za starije od 19 godina.

Prvonagrađeni glazbenik dobiva priliku za solistički nastup u glasovitom newyorškom Carnegie Hallu, a mlada će violinistica svoju nagradu preuzeti upravo prilikom svojeg tamošnjeg američkog debija u studenome 2016.

Dobitnica je brojnih nagrada na nacionalnim i međunarodnim takmičenjima, prvu od kojih je osvojila sa samo devet godina na Međunarodnom natjecanju za mlade violiniste u Gorici (Italija), a među ostalima je osvojila i nagrade ‘Mladi Paganini’ (Poljska), ‘Vaclav Huml’ (Zagreb), ‘Flame Competition’ (Belgija), ‘Bravo Competition’ (Pariz), ‘Petar Konjović’ (Beograd), ‘Stockholm International Music Competition’ (Švedska).

‘Prvo mjesto na prestižnom natjecanju 'American Protege' za Carolinu predstavlja odskočnu dasku u karijeri, ali i veliku potvrdu njezina dosadašnjeg rada’, stoji u priopćenju.
