Young Steinway Artist Kiu Tung Poon appeared as recitalist and collaborative pianist on concert stages throughout the US, Germany, Austria, France, England, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau, and Mainland China. International music festival appearances include Tanglewood and Aspen in the US, Wiener Konzerthaus in Austria, Great Wall in Beijing, and Le French May in Hong Kong. As an advocate of new music, she was privileged to work with today's foremost American composers including John Harbison, George Tsontakis, and Dan Welcher, and has premièred with the Penderecki Quartet among others. Her world première of Mark Morris/Samuel Barber's Excursions with Mark Morris Dance Group in the Tanglewood Music Festival received enthusiastic review by critics writing for The New York Times and Boston Phoenix. Her recent interest in Chinese-Western syncretism in music and contemporary Chinese composers resulted in numerous lecture-recitals and performances in the US, Asia, and Europe. Graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Indiana University Bloomington, and the University of Texas at Austin with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance, her principal mentors include Cheng Wai, Jean-Louis Haguenauer, Gabriel Kwok, and Anton Nel. She has also worked with Michel Béroff, Claude Frank, Jean-François Heisser, John O'Conor, Garrick Ohlsson, John Perry, and Manahem Pressler during summers.
