Hailing from Sydney, Australia, pianist ANDREA LAM is earning consistent acclaim as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician for her “great style and thrilling virtuosity” (Sydney Morning Herald), with the Wall Street Journal pronouncing her a “real talent”. Making her orchestral debut at age 13 with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Andrea has been featured in two nationally televised programs, including Andrea’s Concerto, documenting her life as a young pianist and her performance of Tchaikovsky’s Concerto No. 1 with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. A frequent guest at venues from New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to Australia’s Sydney Opera House, Andrea has also performed under the baton of many of the world’s leading conductors. A keen chamber musician, she is also pianist of the Claremont Trio, an ensemble deeply committed to commissioning composers of their generation. Among her numerous awards and accolades, Andrea was a Semifinalist in the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition, and holds degrees from the Yale and the Manhattan Schools of Music.
