Jannie Sing-Yen Burdeti:
Jannie Sing-Yen Burdeti made her New York debut at the age of 14, appearing in the Young Virtuosos Gala Concert in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Since then, she has performed as a soloist with orchestras and at festivals in the US, Canada, Germany, Austria, Holland, and Italy. Also an accomplished chamber musician, her playing has been called “not only extraordinary technically, but (she) delivered the composer’s intention masterfully” (The Südkurier Newspaper). Her repertoire not only spans the traditional masterworks of the piano literature but also includes compositions by contemporary composers whose music speaks to audiences of all ages.
Jannie was a recipient of the DAAD German Exchange Grant for research on European Contemporary Music, which funded a year of study in Freiburg, Germany. She has additionally received awards from the Wideman International Piano Competition, as well as awards at the King Award for Young Artists, the Stravinsky Awards International Piano Competition, and the Pacific Musical Society.
Jannie earned graduate degrees from the Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg, Germany and from the San Francisco Conservatory. She is currently a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at the Peabody Conservatory, where she is a protégée of international artist Boris Slutsky.
A deeply committed educator and performer, Jannie has served on the faculty at the Peabody Conservatory’s Preparatory Division in Baltimore, MD and the Music City Academy in San Francisco, CA. She currently lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
