Chelsea Guo, soprano and piano

Chelsea Guo, a 2022 Young concert Artists (YCA) Susan Wadsworth International Auditions winner, has already attracted international attention as a pianist and soprano of remarkable gifts. Her dual artistry is featured in her 2021 debut recording on the Orchid Classics label, Chelsea Guo: Chopin in My Voice. Chelsea has performed at the Moritzburg Festival in Germany; the Cremona Musica and Fazioli PIano festivals in Italy; the Miami International Piano Festival; and in prominent venues worldwide. A Young Scholar of the Lang Lang Foundation and a recipient of the US Chopin Foundation scholarship for four consecutive years, she is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music in piano at Juilliard.
