Michele Wong

Michele Wong is a New-York based pianist with a passion for collaborative performance, and bringing classical repertoire to a diverse range of audiences.

Currently pursuing her DMA at Juilliard with Dr. Lydia Brown, she also holds a Masters degree in collaborative piano from IU (studio of Anne Epperson, Aram Arakelyan and Kevin Murphy) and a BM in piano performance from the Eastman School of Music, where she studied with Dr. Douglas Humpherys. Prior to her college studies, Michele studied privately with pianist Ann Schein. She has also coached with renowned artists such as Martin Katz, Graham Johnson, Warren Jones, Kathleen Kelly, Jonathan Feldman, Carol Vaness, Frederica von Stade, Pascal Roge, Atar Arad, Craig Rutenberg, Rita Sloan, Paul Groves, Javier Arrebola, Donald Palumbo, Brian Zeger, Stephen Wadsworth, and members of the Juilliard Quartet, Ying Quartet, Pacifica Quartet, and the Jupiter Quartet, among many others. Just as passionate about new music as she is about standard repertoire, Michele has also worked with many leading composers of today on performances of their works, including John Harbison, Ben Moore, and Jake Heggie, among others.

Michele is an avid performer of vocal, duo, and chamber music. She will be a participant in SourceSong 2023 (Minneapolis). She was a Stern Fellowship recipient at Songfest 2022, and was also invited to participate in Aspen’s collaborative piano program in 2020 (canceled due to the Covid pandemic.) At age 11, she was the very first Next Generation Artist featured by the Omega Ensemble. As one of their featured performers, as well as in collaboration with other similar organizations such as Project: Music Heals Us and the Vital Sounds Initiative, she has performed with some of the leading chamber musicians of today, such as members of the Escher string quartet, among many others. She has been a featured artist of the Howland Chamber Music Circle series, and has also been a frequent collaborator with the Empire Film and Media Ensemble at the Eastman School of Music, whose performances were broadcasted over the radio. She has also performed both as soloist and collaborative pianist for the Caumsett Foundation Summer Concert Series.

Michele received the Honorary Mention prize in the IYAPC Competition, and was a top-prize winner of the Concert Festival International Competition, receiving their Educational Grant as well as a scholarship to perform in Portugal. She was a featured soloist with the Connecticut Virtuosi Orchestra and the Island Chamber Symphony Orchestra. In addition to performances in some of the most prestigious venues in the U.S., including Carnegie Hall, the Kaufman Center, the San Francisco Conservatory, and Bruno Walter Auditorium, she has also performed in St. Petersburg, Russia at the Alexander Nevsky Lavra and the Museum of Theater and Music.

Michele is also a dedicated teacher, committed to helping students of all levels to find their own musical voice through personalized instruction and varied repertoire. In addition to teaching privately, Michele was also a teaching artist/apprentice vocal coach for What Is Opera, Anyway? and Colin Levin’s online repertoire classes for Nordic and German/French art song.

Passionate about outreach work and sharing classical repertoire with diverse audiences, Michele also served as an online media coordinator for Project: Music Heals Us and their Vital Sounds Initiative during the Covid pandemic.
