Wayman Chin

Dean at Longy School of Music of Bard College

Pianist Wayman Chin has performed widely throughout the United States and Asia. In the United States, his concerts have included performances at Princeton University, the Curtis Institute of Music, Jordan Hall in Boston, at the Honolulu Academy of Arts and on the Old First Concert Series in San Francisco. In the Far East, Mr. Chin has appeared at Tsuen Wan Town Hall in Hong Kong, and in the Philippines, on the Sala Foundation concert series, and at the residence of the US Ambassador in Manila. An advocate of new music, Mr. Chin has premiered a number of works by noted composers, including those of Paul Brust, Marti Epstein and Meyer Kupferman; he has also introduced several works of Aaron Jay Kernis to Boston audiences. Of Chin’s performance of Kernis’ song cycle Valentines, with soprano Karyl Ryczek, David Cleary of 21st Century Music wrote, “Wayman Chin traversed the formidable challenges of the piano part with conspicuous success. His highly demonstrative performing style excellently suited the work’s forthright nature.”
