Both praised as “warmly expressive, sensitive and polished” as well as “a valuable advocate for classical music” by New York Concert Review, pianist Angie Zhang combines a decorated performance career with a focus on arts activism to create maximum impact with her music.
The beginning of Zhang’s professional career started at age 10 with her solo debut under Grammy-nominated conductor Niel DePonte. She has performed nearly two dozen solo concerti, and also celebrated her harpsichord and conducting debuts. A rare three-time winner of Juilliard’s Concerto Competition, her engagements have resulted in many performance opportunities, including recitals at LACMA and NYC’s Temple Emanu-El, and performances in the Kennedy Center and the Harvard Club.
Outside of her traditional appearances as a performer, Zhang equally seeks out performances in art museums, orphanages, hospices, and nursing homes, and has performed dozens of multi-disciplinary performances. As an educator, Ms. Zhang had the distinction of being the youngest Juilliard student ever to hold teaching fellowships and assistantships concurrently in the pre-college, college, and evening divisions. Outside Juilliard, she has served as a teacher at the Aspen Music Festival and School for three years, and maintains a private studio ranging from pre-college to adult students.
Originally from Portland, Oregon, Ms. Zhang holds a Bachelor of Music with Academic Honors and Master of Music degree from The Juilliard School, and is a Yamaha Young Performing Artist. Based in New York City, she currently teaches at Juilliard in the college division.
