Haochen Zhang was the youngest competitor in this year's Van Cliburn Competition. He is also a Philadelphia student attending Curtis Institute and studying with the legendary Gary Graffman and the 2009 winner of the competition.
His last recital in preparation for the competition was at Keneseth Israel, an Elkins Park synagogue well known for their arts programming. The piano this young virtuoso used and had rented for the occasion was a Bosendorfer concert grand piano from Cunningham Piano Company!
We look forward to hearing him play on our pianos again and again!
(Incidentally, Ray Chen, the violinist also played in this same recital. Ray just won the Queen Elizabeth competition!)
