Description

**Jenny Chen** Jenny Chen represents a new generation of performers. Her playing is infectious, natural. The energy and insight of her music hasn’t lost the joy of youth, a contradictory mix where the rigors of virtuosity abet, rather than hinder, the spontaneity, the freshness of her musical voice. She has studied with Anne-Marie McDermott for many years, and is working on her master’s at Yale. She enrolled at Curtis at the age of 11, where she has studied with Gary Graffman and the legendary Eleanor Sokoloff. She has played with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Rochester Philharmonic, and the Taipei Symphony, and has won many first prizes in national and international competitions.
