Ju-Ping Song

Lancaster, PA         

JU-PING SONG is recognized as one of today’s champions of contemporary music. Her colorful and beyond-the-recital format performances have won her praise from critics as “an extraordinary pianist” (Boston Globe). In the process, she has inspired the creation and commission of new works by today’s under-40 and distinguished composers.

Concerts and masterclasses take her to Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, Taiwan, Japan and the U.S. throughout the year, and she has been guest artist at Darmstadt Contemporary Music Workshop, Bogotá New Music Festival, Tanglewood Music Center, Florence Youth Orchestra Festival in Italy and Akyoshidai New Music Festival in Japan, and Chautauqua Music Festival, among others.

Ju-Ping (pronounced Zu-Ping)  is the founder and director of NakedEye, a flexible new music ensemble based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, whose mission is to promote works by living composers. She is also a founding member of FLAME Ensemble, an eclectic group of 25 musicians who host and perform in the annual FLAME Festival in Florence, Italy.

Ju-Ping  has been on the faculties of Hunter College in NYC and Pennsylvania Academy of Music in Lancaster, PA, where she taught piano and new music studies before serving as Dean. Ms. Song lives and works in Lancaster, PA.

Ju-Ping holds a B.S. from Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University, a M.M. from Manhattan School of Music and a Ph.D. from New York University.
