Praised by the New York Times as a pianist with “assurance and vitality,” 26-year-old Alan Woo has already acquired considerable performance experience since starting the piano at age four.
At 19, Mr. Woo made his Lincoln Center debut at Alice Tully Hall, performing Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Juilliard Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
Most recently, Mr. Woo was named a prizewinner at the 2017 Ima Hogg and Iowa Piano Competitions. His other accolades include top prizes at The Juilliard School’s 2014 Gina Bachauer Piano Competition and 2010 Concerto Competition, as well as the 2009 IIYM International Piano Competition.
Born in Arlington, Virginia, Mr. Woo completed his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees at the Juilliard School as a student of Robert McDonald. He currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland, where he is pursuing doctoral studies at the Peabody Institute with a Dean’s DMA Fellowship under the guidance of Yong Hi Moon.
