ABOUT TZU-YIN HUANG
Tzu-Yin Huang began playing the piano at the age four in Taiwan.
After many years of studying, including an undergraduate degree from National Taiwan Normal University, she came to the United States where she received her master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Michigan.
Tzu-Yin has won many awards including First Prize and Orchestra Prize at the 12th Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition. This has led to numerous performances in England including her London debut and concerto performances with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Tzu-Yin also received top prizes at the Wideman International Piano Competition, the Iowa Piano Competition, concerto competitions at both the University of Michigan and National Taiwan Normal University and the YAMAHA Piano Competition in Taiwan.
Tzu-Yin has served as performing pianist for the Innsbruck and Meadowmount music festivals, and as a fellow of the Gijón International Piano Festival in Spain.
Tzu-Yin is a performing artist of Chamber Music Michigan (CMM) and has her own Duo group called “Ecius.” Most recently she has been focusing on expanding her repertoire, as well as performing throughout the United States and Europe. Her principal teachers include Chung-Wen Tsai, Louis Nagel, and Logan Skelton.
Tzu-Yin believes that artists have a responsibility to bring music and inspiration to others and enjoys the connections she is able to make through community outreach at schools and retirement homes. Tzu-Yin loves performing as nothing in the world makes her happier. In all of her studies, she has learnt that the most important thing is to play music from the heart. It is only this way that allows music to touch people’s souls.
