Bio Data of the Speaker :
Yann Shie OH, pianist
Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatoire

One of the most versatile musicians from Malaysia, Yann Shie performs, lectures, writes and also stepped in as acting Stage Manager for both the Mariinsky Ballet and Bolshoi Ballet from Russia when they toured Singapore in 2011 and 2013 respectively.

Yann Shie’s debut with the Grieg Piano Concerto at the age of 13 in Kuala Lumpur launched her performing career in Malaysia, covering all the major halls and local festivals. 10 years in Moscow earned her a doctoral degree in Piano Performance and two minors in voice accompaniment and chamber ensemble. Her playing has taken her traveling in Russia from Rachmaninov’s House Museum Estate in Tambov to the Sheremet’yev Palace in St. Petersburg and making a mark in the West at the Oxford Piano Festival, the Nice Summer Music Festival, the Blüthner Pavilion in Leipzig to name a few. Having returned to Malaysia in 2009, Yann Shie spends much time working with young musicians and actively involves herself in music festivals, notably the annual HSBC Classics, both performing and directing. She is a frequent adjudicator in local music competitions and has been invited to conduct master classes for various music faculties including UPM, USM, UiTM and UCSI.

In addition to her busy schedule, Yann Shie has recently joined Ossia Music School as Head of Academic Studies. Engagements in 2014 includes a triple piano concerto by Mozart in KL, performing the Laksa Cantata – a project by Singaporean arts practitioners and premiering new works by 21st century composers, New Mexican Kathleen Ryan and Estonian Tõnu Kõrvits.
