Arizona Musicfest is proud to invite you to tune into the Piano Cleveland “Virtu(al)oso” Competition tomorrow, Tuesday, August 4th at 5:00 pm (PST) to watch Arizona Musicfest College Scholar and Juilliard Alumna Anna Han perform in the competition’s first round.

Featuring competitors from around the globe, Anna was chosen to compete alongside contestants from 19 foreign countries. In a further Musicfest connection, 2018 Musicfest guest artist Olga Kern serves on the competition’s distinguished jury.

Hailed by the Washington Post as “prodigiously gifted” and “displaying imagination, taste, and pianistic firepower far beyond her years,” Anna grew up in Chandler studying with Fei Xu. A prize-earning pianist in the Arizona Musicfest Young Musicians Competitions, Anna was a frequent performer on the Musicfest Young Musicians Concert Series. She received the 2014-2018 Arizona Musicfest Scholarship.
