Sunday, January 31 @ 4:15 PM
Originally scheduled for January 24
We are delighted to welcome back to the House pianist, Tzu-Yin Huang, after making her well-received debut last summer on Live @ The 415. This time, she presents a wonderful recital program featuring the works of Schumann and Brahms with selections composed around the muse that inspired them both: Clara Schumann.
Tzu-Yin Huang began playing the piano at the age four in Taiwan. After many years of study, including an undergraduate degree from National Taiwan Normal University, she won the school concerto competition and the YAMAHA Piano Competition as a student of Chung-Wen Tsai. She subsequently came to the United States where she received her Master degree from the University of Michigan as a student of Louis Nagel and remained in Dr. Nagel’s studio during her doctor degree until he retired in 2016.
While at Michigan she won the University of Michigan school concerto competition in 2015. She has served as performing pianist for the Innsbrook and Meadowmount music festivals. In Spring of 2016 she was awarded First Prize and Orchestra Prize at the 12th Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition in East Sussex, England. This has led to numerous performances in England including her London debut in 2016, and concerto performances with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2017 she received another Gold Medal at the 66th Wideman International Piano Competition in Louisiana, providing her another chance to perform concerto with Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra. In addition to being a soloist, she is also a performing artist of Chamber Music Michigan (CMM). In 2017 May, She completed doctoral degree studies at the University of Michigan as a student of Logan Skelton. In all of her studies, she has learned that the most important thing is to play music from the heart. It is only this way that allows music to touch people’s souls.
