YUN JANICE LU 21, born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, is a bachelor’s degree student at California State University Fullerton under the tutelage of Ning An. Ms. Lu won second prize in the 2015 Music Teachers National Association Competition, and first prize in both the Lee University International Piano Festival and Competition and YAMAHA Piano Competition in Taiwan. As winner of the 2015 PianoTexas Young Artist Concerto Competition, Ms. Lu performed with Fort Worth Symphony under the baton of Lio Kuokman, in which “she captured Liszt’s style, almost impossible to exaggerate, and took full advantage of the fireworks. She has a forceful attack when needed and an impressive legato.” Yun Lu began private lessons at the age of five and gave her first formal concert at age 10. Four years later, Ms. Lu made her orchestral debut with Taiwan Youth Orchestra, and has since appeared as soloist in Taiwan in both Kaohsiung City Music Hall and Jhihde Hall, as well as in Europe and the United States. Ms. Lu has participated in the Walnut Hill Music Festival, PianoTexas Festival, and Académie Internationale d'Eté de Nice. An avid chamber musician, Ms. Lu has performed at Formosa Chamber Music Festival and Music@Menlo. Ms. Lu was awarded full scholarship to attend Pianofest in the Hamptons, where she performed in their concert series. Ms. Lu was recently interviewed by Muzik online magazine in Taiwan, has performed for artists Arie Vardi, Dang Thai Son, Piotr Paleczny, and Eugen Indjic, and has worked with Clive Greensmith, Gilbert Kalish, Gloria Chien, Erin Keefe, Paul Neubauer, Escher String Quartet, and Wu Han.
