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, she is currently in her graduate studies as a Juilliard Kovner Fellow with Yoheved Kaplinsky and Joseph Kalichstein.

Equally at ease performing solo concerts, chamber music, and with orchestras, Angie revels in interpolating dynamic collaborative ventures alongside innovative recital projects, and enjoys performing works by established living and promising young composers. For the past two years, she was chosen to work closely on world premieres with choreographers including Aszure Barton and Kate Skarpetowska for Juilliard New Dances Edition 2016 and 2017, respectively, which resulted in a total of ten critically-acclaimed live performances with the sophomore classes of Juilliard dancers at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater of Lincoln Center.

Charming audiences with her sensitive and thoughtful playing, she has performed extensively as soloist with orchestras since her debut at the age of ten in Portland, Oregon. Since 2016, Angie has appeared with the Olympia Symphony Orchestra under Huw Edwards, Juilliard Orchestra, conductor Maestro Fabio Luisi, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, conductor Andrews Sill, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, conductor Matthew Kraemer, and the Downtown Sinfonietta of White Plains, conductor Vincent Lionti. She has returned as soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra of the Dominican Republic, Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra, and the Missouri Symphony Orchestra.

Awarded the Gluck Fellowship during her undergraduate studies, she traveled with other musicians, dancers, and actors to perform interactive concerts in hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, pediatric centers, and psychiatric wards of the five boroughs of NYC, and has performed at the Weill Cornell Medical School’s Music and Medicine Concert Series.

Aside from her musical initiatives, she has been a major contributor to her school community in distinct ways including serving as Chair of Juilliard Student Council, Student Ambassador, writing for the award-winning Juilliard Journal, leading admission tours and speaking on panels for prospective students, and empowering new generations of student leaders through the Juilliard Leadership Program.

She became the youngest in the history of the school to be awarded teaching fellowships for secondary piano, and keyboard sight-reading, and is also currently a faculty teaching assistant and departmental assistant for Keyboard Skills. Angie’s efforts were recognized at the 2017 Commencement Ceremony, where she won the Peter Mennin Prize for Outstanding Achievement and Leadership in Music and graduated with Academic Honors. Angie Zhang also sings in the Barnard-Columbia Chorus, and believes strongly in the importance of cultivating her mind, body, and soul at every step of her life.
