Hailed as a rising star, 26-year-old pianist Sean Chen is most widely recognized for his “formidable set of fingers” and “million-volt smile”(Dallas Morning News). Originally from Oak Park, California, Chen then studied at Julliard College and then went on to receive his Artist Diploma at the Yale School of Music. In 2013, Chen won the American Pianists Association’s DeHaan Classical Fellowship, one of the most lucrative and significant prizes available to an American pianist; he also won Third Prize at the 14th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, becoming the first American to reach the finals since 1997. He received Second Prize at the 2011 Seoul International Music Competition, Third Prize at the 2013 Morocco Philharmony International Piano Competition, Best Performance of an American Work at the 2009 Cleveland International Piano Competition, and he was a semifinalist at the 2012 Leeds International Piano Competition.
