The concert is open to public. Seating is limited, so reservations are recommended. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the performance begins promptly at 7:30. After the concert, you’ll have an opportunity to meet the artists and learn more about their backgrounds, interests, and career plans.


Because we’re presenting a full season of concerts at considerable expense, we ask for donations at each performance. We accept donations in advance or at the concert. The suggested donation for this performance is $30 per person, but please give whatever you can afford. If you make an advance donation at the suggested level, we’ll reserve a seat for you at the event.

About the Artist

Hilda Huang, a young musical prodigy from California, has the distinction of being the only pianist to have received top prizes in the Leipzig (2014), Würzburg (2010), and Tureck (2010) International Bach Competitions. She subsequently appeared in the documentary film Bach and Friends, and the Leipzig and Montreal Bach Festivals.

Huang made her orchestral and recording debut in 2008 under Erich Kunzel with the Cincinnati Pops (TELARC). She has performed at the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall and the Bach-Archiv Leipzig. In 2016, she appeared on BASF Ludwigshafen’s culture program as part of the Steinway Prizewinners’ Concert Network.

Huang attended the Music@Menlo Chamber Music Institute as a Young Performer for six summers, and has since appeared as a Protégé Project young artist at Chamber Music Northwest and as a Steans Fellow at the Ravinia Festival. She was a 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, was a Gold Award recipient from the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts’ YoungArts Week, and was named a 2008 Davidson Fellow by the Davidson Institute for Talent Development.

Huang was a long-time student of the piano pedagogue John McCarthy and the harpsichordist and choral conductor Corey Jamason at the Preparatory Division of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She has received generous additional instruction from Robert Blocker, David Finckel, Michael Friedmann, Wu Han, Gilbert Kalish, Robert Levin, Christopher O’Riley, John Perry, Leon Plantinga, Anton Nel, Inge Rosar, and Benjamin Simon. She has made repeat appearances affiliated with Thürmer Pianos, and thanks them for their ongoing support.

Huang was born and raised in Palo Alto. She graduated from Yale College in 2017, receiving a B.S. in Chemistry with distinction and the Wrexham and Sharp prizes from the Yale Department of Music. She is now pursuing a Masters degree at the Yale University School of Music and studies piano with Melvin Chen.
