“…you got the distinct impression that this is an artist who is honest, responds with spontaneity to the music as it’s happening, and who is unafraid to take risks to get her musical thoughts across.” –Palm Beach Arts Paper

Praised for her ”bountiful gifts and passionate immersion into the music she touches” (The Plain Dealer), Chinese pianist Fei-Fei Dong is a top six finalist at the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and a winner of the 2014 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition. She continues to build a reputation for her poetic interpretations, charming audiences with her “passion, piquancy and tenderness” and “winning stage presence” (Dallas Morning News). The 2015–2016 season includes a number of prominent engagements , including New York City debut recitals at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and Merkin Concert Hall, as well as recitals for the Gilmore Rising Stars Series and St. Vincent College Concert Series; concerto engagements with the Lexington and Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic Orchestras; and summer appearances in Bravo! Vail Valley, Highlands Chamber Music, and Lake George Music Festivals. Committed to chamber music, she formed the Aletheia Piano Trio in 2013, and the group has debuted at the Kennedy Center, Rose Studio, and Alice Tully Hall. Deeply committed to sharing her joy for music and connecting with communities, Ms. Dong also engages students and audiences through school and outreach concerts and master classes.
