Helen Sung

Pianist/composer Helen Sung has spent most of her life in two distinct worlds. A classical student from a young age who transitioned to jazz in her early twenties, she understands the limitless range and potential of the piano in a way that few specialists in either genre can. In addition, as the daughter of Chinese immigrants, Sung embodies two diverse cultures and has discovered a musical voice and identity that are true to both - and more importantly, true to herself.

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Sung began classical piano and violin lessons at age five, studying during her formative teenage years with a severe teacher of the Russian classical piano tradition.

Helen maintains close ties with her hometown Houston, performing there regularly and visiting her high school HSPVA to conduct master classes with both the classical and jazz departments. The Houston Chinese Community Center selected her as an "Artist Honoree" at their 2011 Gala, and she will be inducted into HSPVA's "Hall of Fame" in December 2017. In January 2017, the College of Fine Arts of her alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin, awarded Sung with its most prestigious honor: the E. William Doty Distinguished Alumna Award.
