Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

Friends of Classical Music

Those who heard Anna play two years ago will recall the dramatic impact her playing made upon the audience that resulted in a standing ovation. She returns to Arts on the Lake with pianist, Joyce Chen.


Born in Uzbekistan, Anna had her first solo public performance at the age of at 8 and was only 14 when she won first prize in the Glazunov International Villon Competition in Paris.


A “New Names” Award winner in Moscow and the Grand-Prix winner of the International Violin Competition in Kazakhstan, she has soloed with the Symphony Orchestra of Hamburg, debuted in NYC at the Lyric Chamber Music Society, and performed with members of the renowned Emerson String Quartet.


Noted soloist, Dr. Joyce Chen is a recipient of the 2018 Individual Artist Fellowship from the Delaware Division of the Arts. She has been gaining recognition both nationally and internationally and made her international debut at the Musica Antiqua Festival and Harpsichord Competition in Bruges, Belgium as well as the International Normandy Baroque Music Competition in Rouen, France.

In 2016 Chen was one of the six finalists at the Eighth International Jurow Harpsichord Competition and in May 2019, she performed as a soloist of the Emerging Artist Showcase by Early Music America at the Bloomington Early Music Festival.

Dr. Chen holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley, a Doctor of Musical Arts from Stony Brook University and is currently pursuing a PhD degree in Historical Musicology at Princeton University, where she is also a graduate student director of Early Music Princeton.
