Pianist places first in annual TLL Talent Hunt

 | Published on 3/15/2015
For the seventh year in the row, the Tau Lambda Lambda chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. held 

its Annual Talent Hunt competition.  The event was held on February 28th on the campus of the College 

of Southern Maryland’s La Plata.

Aaron Parker, a talented pianist and a student at Edgewood High School in Edgewood, MD, placed first 

in the competition. Walker, 17, received a $500 cash award.  This was the second year in the row he 

entered the competition

First and second runners-up were Andre Jones and Kennedy Bell, respectively.

Jones, a junior at Westlake High School in Waldorf, MD and a great student, got the audience involved 

with his rendition of “A Change Is Gonna Come” and Bell, a senior at Suitland High School in Suitland, 

MD used her sultry voice to serenade the crowd.

When speaking about the Talent Hunt, Chairman Quentin Lowe had this to say "This year's Talent Hunt 

was another success in my opinion.  I was stressed a little more this year because we had to cancel the 

rehearsal due to the weather, so I didn't know what to expect of the contestants.  However, we had a 

great group of talented contestants.  I'm looking forward to next year's competition already."

A nationally mandated program of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, the Talent Hunt competition is a yearly 

event hosted by Tau Lambda Lambda and is open to all high school students in Southern Maryland.  

Cash prizes are awarded to the top three placing competitors, and the grand winner advances to a 

regional competition.
