Alvin Zhu has performed Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Gershwin, and Rachmaninoff concertos with orchestras around the world, appearing at Alice Tully Hall, Steinway Hall, Sydney Opera House, Beijing Concert Hall, Palais du Congress, Fletcher Hall, Amphitheater in Chautauqua, Sprague Hall at Yale University, and Joan and Irving Harris Hall at Aspen. He has recorded for NPR’s ‘From the Top’ as a featured Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist, Pittsburgh’s WQED radio, and Steinway’s Spirio player-piano catalog. He holds several prizes in international and national competitions. As a juror, he was on the panel of the 2018 Franz Liszt International Youth Piano Competition (China Division) held in Changsha.

He is the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship and has researched the musical contributions of his paternal grandfather Gong-Yi Zhu, a master piano pedagogue whose influence in China is still widely felt today. He has been a guest lecturer at the United States Embassy in Beijing, The Juilliard School, and Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. In the Fall of 2019, he will join the inaugural faculty roster at the Tianjin Juilliard School, Juilliard’s first branch campus.
