Los Angeles Times highlights the talent of Yahaira Tubac
Yahaira Tubac, is a young Guatemalan piano prodigy who dreams of taking her music around the world.
The international media outlet The Los Angeles Times published a special article on Tubac.
“Guatemalan pianist Yahaira Tubac is clear about her goal and the recital she will give for free in Los Angeles is just a stepping stone in the process of conquering the great music stages on an international level, the result of exhausting sacrifice and energetic preparation that few at her age can afford to have”, highlighted The LA Times in Spanish.
“I would like to be a great concert pianist,” said the 12-year-old girl in an interview with this media outlet while doing the last rehearsals prior to her free concert, which took place on July 17 at MacArthur Park’s Levitt Pavillion, where she will perform classical music songs and the sounds of Guatemalan folklore.
Her talent has crossed borders and in 2017, when she was 7 years old, she was invited to Miami (Florida) to the television show “Siempre Niños”, which was hosted by Don Francisco for the Telemundo network.
“There are many people who have congratulated me on my talent, the truth is that I feel happy because it is something that I like to do and pass on to people,” acknowledged Tubac, originally from San Juan Sacatepéquez, who has also delighted alongside her piano in different presentations she has given in Oklahoma, Washington DC and Arlington (Virginia).
Yahaira is currently in sixth grade. After school, around noon, she spends part of her time playing games or watching television. Likewise, she sets aside three hours to practice the piano daily, an instrument with which she has been familiar since before she was born, as her parents are also musicians.
