About the Artist

Born in 1996, Taiwanese pianist Yun Janice Lu began private lessons at the age of five and gave her first formal concert at 10. Four years later, she made her orchestral debut with the Taiwan Youth Orchestra. She has appeared in recitals as soloist in Kaohsiung City Music Hall and Jhih-De Hall in Taiwan, Europe, and North America.

Janice was the semi-finalist at prestigious Geneva International Music Competition in Switzerland, the winner of the top prize in the senior division at the 2015 Music Teachers National Association Competition, and the 2013 YAMAHA International Piano Competition in Taiwan. Her victory at the PianoTexas Young Artists Concerto Competition resulted in a performance with Fort Worth Symphony under the baton of Lio Kuokman that received rave reviews.

An avid chamber musician, Janice has appeared at numerous music festivals, including Walnut Hill Music Festival, Academie Internationale d’Ete de Nice, PianoTexas Festival, PianoFest in the Hamptons, Music Academy of the West, Taos Chamber Music Festival, and Four Season Chamber Music Festival. At the renowned [email protected] Chamber Music Festival in California, she studied with Clive Greensmith of the Tokyo String Quartet and with Gilbert Kalish, Glenn Dicterow, Erin Keefe, Paul Neubauer, and Wu Han.

Janice obtained her Bachelor of Music degree at California State University Fullerton School of Music under the tutelage of Ning An (third prize winner of the 1999 Queen Elizabeth Piano Competition). Janice is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree at the Yale School of Music under the tutelage of Wei-Yi Yang.
