Name: Elaine Sun Yee-man

Age: 17

School: Tsuen Wan Government Secondary School

Achievement: Elaine wrote an arts commentary which was awarded a distinction in the critic writing programme on performing arts at the Crossover + Dialogue - New Vision Arts Festival 2004.

She commented on the joint concert by Norwegian band Secret Garden and mainland sibling duo Ding Fei-fei and Ding Wei,

which was the opening performance of the festival.

It was Elaine's first try at writing an arts commentary. She was able to write about the concert with a balanced and analytical perspective.

Elaine is a music-lover. She won the solo pianist category at the Hong Kong Schools Music Festival 2003.

Judge's comment: 'She expressed her feelings on music well. More importantly, she observed the entire arrangement of the concert. But it would have been better if she streamlined her commentary and focused on some main elements only.'
