Biography

Lauded for her “extraordinarily varied palette” (WholeNote Magazine) and “purely magical” playing (New York Concert Review), pianist Silvie Cheng illuminates musical works with her exquisite touch at the keyboard. Since her Carnegie Hall solo debut in 2011, she has performed as both soloist and collaborative pianist across the globe, from New York’s Steinway Hall to Brussels’ Flagey Hall, and Montréal’s Maison Symphonique to Shanghai’s Poly Theatre.

As guest soloist with orchestra, Silvie most recently made her debut with the New Amsterdam Symphony Orchestra in 2018 and will debut with Symphony Nova Scotia in the 2019-20 season. An active recitalist, she regularly presents concerts at the National Arts Club in New York, where she is currently based. She has won top prizes at the Thousand Islands International Piano Competition, Heida Hermanns International Piano Competition, Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Competition, and numerous national competitions in her native Canada.

A passionate advocate of new music, Silvie has given over forty world premieres since 2010 in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Cornell University, and the National Gallery of Canada. With an extraordinary ability to connect with the next generation and with audiences both on and off the stage, she is a teaching-artist of the Manhattan School of Music’s Distance Learning program and of the Bridge Arts Ensemble.

Silvie received her ARCT performance diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Manhattan School of Music in New York. Her musical mentors have included Jeffrey Cohen, Menahem Pressler, and Angela Hewitt.
