Although South Korean by origin, Ju Young Lee was born in Tokyo, Japan on August 16th, 1991 and moved to her native country the next year. As a child, she was always intrigued by Bach and Mozart’s music, and by the age of 6, she was ready to play the piano as a lifetime passion. She has been awarded prizes for many competitions during her years at elementary and middle school. Yet realizing vastness of the world stage and limitations of art industry in Korea, she made a big decision to continue her passion abroad in New York City at the age of 16. Studying in New York City for 8 years, under the guidance of Julian Martin at Juilliard, she has had many fulfilling experiences developing and polishing her skills at piano and music. She has performed at several music festivals such as Gijon International Piano Music Festival, Valencia International Piano Music Festival in Spain and Yellow Barn Young Artist Program in Vermont. Also, she has had many recitals and concerts such as Recital at Weill Hall at Carnegie, Recital at the Mozart Hall in Seoul, Camerata Virtuosi New Jersey Piano Concerto at Merkin Recital Hall in New York City and several chamber music concerts and recitals at The Juilliard School. Ju Young’s time at Juilliard bestowed confidence, technical abilities, and most importantly her own unique color upon her and her music. After graduating from Juilliard, she decided to continue her graduate studies with a full scholarship, Graduate Incentive Award (GIA), at Conservatory-College of Music in the University of Cincinnati under Soyeon Kate Lee. Although the sudden change in environment initially caught her off-guard, it has helped her take a new approach to her musical studies. Besides having more control over her style of music, she has gained a greater number of opportunities to perform her solo and chamber music.
