Mayron Tsong

Mayron Tsong

Steinway Artist, Mayron Tsong, has been taken by her performances around the globe to almost every state in the continental United States, as well as Canada, Russia, Sweden, Italy, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. After her solo recital Debut at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall, Harris Goldsmith of The New York Concert Review praised it as "an enlivening, truly outstanding recital.” Fanfare Magazine called her “a genius, pure and simple… perhaps, a wizard.”

Her first CD released by Centaur Records won a Global Music Award and rave reviews in American Record Guide and Fanfare Magazine compared her playing to Horowitz, Pollini, Andsnes and Laredo, saying “her technique is dazzling, yet subjugated to a controlling intellect and deeply felt sensitivity that removes her from the category `virtuoso' by nature of her long-range artistic vision.”

Mayron has performed and interviewed for many radio broadcasts, including CBC Radio in Canada, WDAV in North Carolina, WFMT Radio in Chicago, Radio 4 in Hong Kong and NPR's “The State of Things.” In chamber music collaborations, her summers have taken her to festivals across the United States, Germany and Italy, including The Amalfi Coast Music Festival, The Art of Piano at Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Eastern Music Festival, Schlern International Music Festival and Orfeo Chamber Music Festival in Italy. Her work with some of the finest chamber groups and musicians in North America include Jeffrey Zeigler (of the Kronos Quartet), Brentano String Quartet, Philharmonic Quintet of New York, Miró String Quartet, Vega String Quartet, James Campbell, George Taylor and Antonio Lysy.

Holding graduate degrees in both Piano Performance and Music Theory from Rice University, her impressive pedigree boasts distinguished teachers like John Perry, György Sebök, Robert Levin, Anton Kuerti and Marilyn Engle. Gaining recognition as a pedagogue herself, she has appeared around the world as a master class clinician, lecturer, judge and Visiting Professor. She was recently added to Who's Who Among Professional Artists as well as Who's Who Among American Teachers & Educators.

Mayron is currently Associate Professor/Artist Teacher and Director of Undergraduate Studies at the School of Music at the University of Maryland. She previously served as Head of Keyboard Studies at the University of Lethbridge and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
