Starting piano at age five, Alison Chiang won her first piano competition two years later in the 1999 St. Charles Illinois Music Competition. When her family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, in 2000, she studied with Olga Radosavljevich at the Cleveland Institute of Music and made her concerto debut with the Cleveland Women’s Orchestra and the Lakeside Symphony.
After her family moved to Dallas, Texas, in 2008, Alison won several top prizes in piano competitions and performed concertos with the Lewisville Lake Symphony and the Plano Symphony Orchestra. She studied with Pamela Mia Paul during this time.
Alison is currently pursuing her Doctorate Degree in Piano Performance at the Eastman School of Music, where she also received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. She studied with Nelita True during her undergraduate studies, continuing her master’s and doctorate degrees with Natalya Antonova. Her most recent honors include top prizes in the Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Piano Competition and Lennox International Young Artists Competition, as well as Second Prize in the Wideman International Piano Competition.
