About the Artist


Tiffany Poon

Born in Hong Kong, Tiffany Poon was accepted into the Juilliard School Pre-College Division on a full scholarship at the age of eight and made her solo and concerto debut in the USA when she was ten years old.

Her debut album, “Natural Beauty,” released by KAWAI Edition in May 2014, features works by Bach, Haydn, Chopin, Liszt and Debussy. The 2018-19 season includes recitals as part of the Klavierfestival Ruhr, the Rheingau Musikfestival, concerts in Brazil and Mexico, and a debut recital at the Huayi Festival at Singapore’s Esplanade. She will participate in the Bohème 2020 program as part of this summer’s Dresden Music Festival and Moritzburg Festival. In the 19/20 season, she will debut at the Mozarteum.

In addition to performing and studying, she also devotes her time to making videos on YouTube, where she shares insights of her life as a musician with the goal to peel back the curtain on classical music. Her social media following of nearly 90,000 subscribers has led to unique opportunities.

Tiffany received a full scholarship from the Columbia University/Juilliard School exchange program and has gone on to Yale University’s School of Music.

In 2014, Tiffany was named National YoungArts Winner in the United States. Her awards include first prize and Best Performance of Concerto Award at the 8th Moscow International Frederick Chopin Competition for Young Pianists in 2012. Most recently, she won the first prize at the Manhattan International Music Competition.

Tiffany Poon is a 2018 fellow of the Young Artists Foundation gGmbH in Germany.
