Soojin Ahn, Piano

Soojin Ahn, Piano


Performing throughout the United States, Europe and Asia to unanimous critical acclaim, SOOJIN AHN is recognized as one of the finest pianists of her generation.

Soojin Ahn is the recipient of numerous awards and prizes from international competitions, most notably the Gilmore Young Artist Award and the audience prize at the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw. Subsequently, she has been the guest soloist with The Boston Pops, Colorado Springs, Jupiter (NYC), Kalamazoo and Omaha symphony orchestras and the Chicago and New England chamber orchestras. In 2001, she was invited by David Robertson to perform Messiaen’s Turangalila Symphony with the Chicago Civic Orchestra.  Her recitals have been heard in Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Alice Tully Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall and Symphony Hall and in Philadelphia, presented by The Philadelphia Orchestra. She stunned the music community when, for her debut at Korea’s Sejong Cultural Center, she performed the twenty-four Études of Chopin at the age of 15.

An avid chamber musician, Soojin Ahn has performed with the Manhattan String Quartet and collaborates frequently with violinist Rachel Barton Pine and cellist Wendy Warner.

Soojin Ahn’s performances have been broadcast frequently on WMFT in Chicago. Her November 2006 recital on the Fazioli Salon Series was voted “Best Performance of the Year,” and was re-broadcast before the end of that year.

Soojin Ahn began playing the piano at the age of three in her native Korea. At nine, she moved to the United States to continue her musical studies. Over the years, her principal teachers included Menahem Pressler, Russell Sherman and Yoheved Kaplinsky. Ms. Ahn holds B.M and M.M. degrees from the New England Conservatory, as well as the Advanced Certificate from The Juilliard School.
