Hana Chang began playing the violin at four years old and studies with Ida Kavafian at the Curtis Institute of Music. She has won top prizes at numerous competitions including the Stradivarius, Prague Spring, Louis Spohr, and Beethoven Hradec International Violin Competitions and has recently performed as a soloist with the Prague Radio Symphony, Czech Virtuosi, Utah Symphony and Hunan Symphony. Hana has also performed in the Smetana Litomyšl, St. Wenceslas, and Young Prague International Music Festivals in the Czech Republic and the Deer Valley Music Festival in Park City, Utah. She plays on an Amati violin, kindly on loan from the Rin Collection in Singapore.

I’m very grateful to be part of the upcoming Menuhin Competition. I’m excited to be surrounded by such inspiring musicians and I hope to find new musical ideas and perspectives, as well as make lifelong friends and memories.
