BIO

Qilin Sun    Piano

Hailed by Irish Times as a brilliant performer with “unfettered enthusiasm”, pianist Qilin Sun develops herself as both a soloist and a collaborative musician. She had her first public performance with an orchestra at age 11 playing Mozart Piano Concerto K.488 with Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then, she started performing in various venues throughout Asia, Europe and North America. She has also received a number of awards and accolades including the first prize in the Xing Hai Cup National Youth Piano Competition in Beijing, second Prize in China Wen Hua Award National Piano Competition, and first prize in the 5th Asian Piano Competition in Hong Kong.


Her recent concert highlights include the opening gala concert with Sichuan Chengdu Orchestra in the City Concert Hall in China, and recitals at Alice Tully Hall of Lincoln Center, Royal Dublin Society of Ireland, Ruïnekerk in Netherlands, Imperial Palace of Goslar in Germany, Grand Hall of Sichuan Conservatory of Music in China, Aspen Chapel in Colorado, Chateau of Fontainebleau in France, Studzinski Hall of Bowdoin College, Paul Hall, Morse Hall and The Peter J. Sharp Theater of Juilliard School along with other various venues throughout New York City.


As an enthusiastic collaborative musician, Ms. Sun is currently a member of the Altezza Piano Trio. The trio has been promoted by The Juilliard School’s Honors Chamber Music Program and is quickly establishing itself as an exciting and promising ensemble in the New York City area.  In addition, Ms. Sun is also a member of The New Juilliard Ensemble, which has premiered and performed several new works in Alice Tully Hall.


Born in Sichuan, China, Ms. Sun started playing the piano at the age of three. She completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at The Juilliard School, and continues to study there as a C.V. Starr fellow of the prestigious Doctor of Musical Arts ( DMA ) program. She is currently under the tutelage of Yoheved Kaplinsky and Matti Raekallio.
