A young West Vancouver piano prodigy will take the stage this weekend at New York City's Carnegie Hall.

Shuqi Li, 6, has been playing piano for about a year and a half, and showed talent early on, according to her teacher, who says she has concentration that is rare for someone her age.

But Shuqi says that for her, that’s the hard part.

"Hardest part is to kind of like keep your bum on, keep like concentrating," Shuqi says.
