Graduate Center alumna Quynh Nguyen '09Quynh Nguyen (D.M.A. Music, ’09) was awarded second place in the American Prize Lorin Hollander Award in Piano contest, as well as second place in the Solo Piano Professional Division of the American Prize competitions.
The American Prize is a series of nonprofit competitions designed to recognize the best performing artists, ensembles, and composers in the United States based on submitted recordings. It was founded on the belief that “a great deal of excellent music being made in this country goes unrecognized and unheralded, not only in our major cities, but all across the country,” according to the prize’s website.
Nguyen received the second place for the Hollander award for her performance of the Mozart Piano Concerto in G Major, K. 453.
Nguyen has performed extensively throughout the United States and Europe. As a concerto soloist, she has performed with the Jager Meister Chamber Orchestra, the Berlin University Orchestra, the San Francisco Concerto Orchestra, and the Regional Wind Orchestra of Paris, among others. She currently teaches at Hunter College.
