Special event with award-winning pianist Angie Zhang

Angie Zhang, pianist, born in 1996, became the Second Prize Winner of the Eighth New York International Piano Competition in June 2016, a biennial event presented under the auspices of The Stecher and Horowitz Foundation. Described as a “valuable advocate for classical music from her generation” by New York Concert Review, Angie Zhang is a proud recipient of the Kovner Fellowship at Juilliard and an incoming senior studying with Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky. An active member of her school community, she is currently Chair of Juilliard Student Council, a Student Ambassador, Admissions Tour Guide, and a student in the Barnard-Columbia-Juilliard Exchange Program.

Charming audiences with her sensitive and thoughtful playing, she has performed extensively as a soloist with orchestras since she made her debut playing under Grammy-nominated conductor Niel DePonte at the age of ten. This past year, she made her debut with the Juilliard Orchestra under Maestro Fabio Luisi, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra under Andrews Sill, and the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra under Matthew Kraemer. She was also re-engaged by the National Symphony Orchestra of the Dominican Republic, Missouri Symphony Orchestra, and the Olympia Symphony Orchestra, which marked her fifth collaboration with Maestro Huw Edwards. She has also performed with the Juilliard Pre-College Symphony, Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra, Ensemble 212 of NYC, and the American Academy of Conducting at Aspen Orchestra.

A top prize winner in numerous competitions, including the 2014 Aspen Music Festival and School’s Piano Concerto Competition, Rosalyn Tureck International Bach Competition, Juilliard Pre-College Concerto Competition, Juilliard Pre-College Nordmann Scholarship Competition, New Orleans International Piano Competition for Young Artists, and the New York Ensemble 212 Young Artist Concerto Competition. Angie recently won the 2016 Juilliard Concerto Competition as well as a top prize in the PianoArts North American Competition. Notable radio features include the National Public Radio’s popular show, “From the Top,” Aspen Public Radio, Portland’s All Classical KQAC, Seattle’s KING FM, and WGBH in Boston.

Angie Zhang has not only proven herself a versatile solo and chamber musician, but also a passionate educator. For the past three summers at the Aspen Music Festival and School, she was selected as a teaching fellow and gave private lessons and master classes to local students. Zhang is the youngest Juilliard Teaching Fellow in the history of the school and currently instructs both Keyboard Sight-Reading and Secondary Piano to her fellow undergraduate and graduate peers. She also holds the 2016-17 Juilliard Keyboard Skills Departmental Assistantship Position.

She has been a Maxwell Gluck Community Service Fellow for the past two years at Juilliard. Angie has worked with acclaimed choreographer Aszure Barton, and performed five successive nights at the annual Juilliard New Dances: Edition 2015 in Peter Jay Sharp Theater. She was also featured in a recent episode of the Juilliard Open Studios app.
