Lucy Yao is a pianist, multidisciplinary artist, teacher, and chamber musician. She draws from a rich repertoire ranging from 17th century solo piano works to interdisciplinary projects and music with electronics. Her performances have led her from the Chopin Festival in Naleczow, Poland, a renovated cathedral-music venue in Copenhagen, to the Contemporary Opera Ensemble at the Manhattan School of Music, and beyond the usual scale of a concert pianist. As a passionate activist, she has organized benefit concerts for the ACLU and American Lung Cancer Foundation at her alma mater, Western Michigan University, as well as in Denmark. She is the founder of a contemporary collective based in NYC, which gives voice to forgotten women in history. Recently, her primary influences are Rachmaninoff, Shakespeare, Aristotle, Greta Gerwig, Cy Twombly, Yayoi Kusama, Murakami, and Studio Ghibli films. She has held collaborative pianist positions at the Interlochen Academy of the Arts, the University of Michigan, and the Manhattan School of Music. Lucy has degrees from the Manhattan School of Music and Western Michigan University.

Lucy Yao wsg Strangers in a Room

Combining styles and genres that are music that could not be further apart, classically trained pianist Lucy Yao brings a program varying from 18-th century chromatic fugues to the distortion of 15 pianos being recorded simultaneously playing back, to the architecture of spider webs, back to the venetian-inspired barcarolle. The program will feature the New York-based interdisciplinary collective, "Strangers in a Room" with dancers Moscelyne Parkeharrison and Barry Gans in a world premiere of "Threshold" (2018) for music and dance by Trey Makler. 

His music draws from a broad spectrum of techniques, influences, and experiences to craft deeply moving and expressive pieces ranging from tonal to experimental. This eclecticism allows Makler a flexible approach to creating, with his process constantly changing from piece to piece. He especially enjoys collaborating closely with musicians and artists from all disciplines in an effort to break from the traditional solitude that comes with being a composer.

24 Hour Concert Challenge

7 Composers. 21 Musicians. 7 Pieces of Music composed, rehearsed, and performed in 24 hours. 

Taken from the Manhattan School of Music's concept of the concert, Lucy Yao has started the first 24 Hour Concert Challenge as a way to bring performers of different training and backgrounds in collaboration with the composers of the Royal Danish Academy of Music. The composers come in without any written material and meet with the performers at the beginning of the 24 hours. From there on, it is up to them to decide how to structure their compositional process and rehearsals. This is an experiment to see what composers are capable of when they are pushed past their limits to the point of breaking down boundaries of judgment that ordinarily come when there is time to do so. This is a space free from the rigorous expectations and constraints that most classical musicians face daily. This is what happens when chance is taken as the only constant.
