ALBANY – Dr. Zheng Jennifer Huang, a native of China, has performed numerous recitals and concerts as a pianist and harpsichordist in solo performances and music ensembles in Asia, Europe, and the United States, including the Weil Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall Lincoln Center among others. In a New York Times review, Allan Koznin noted, “Jenny (Jennifer) Huang performed . . . with a rhythmic fluidity that conveyed (the) essential characteristic” of the piece.
Dr. Huang’s debut piano recital will be Sunday, Nov 3 at 4:00 p.m. in the Darton Theater. The recital is open to the public and free of charge. She will be performing on a full, nine-foot Steinway concert grand piano.
Dr. Huang is also the co-founder of Ensemble Solaire, a group dedicated to historically informed performance of music in different genres. The ensemble has performed at The New York Early Music Series, New York Midtown Concerts, Trinity Church’s Concerts, Amherst Early Music Festival, New York Historical Society, and other events.
Dr. Huang currently teaches as an assistant professor of piano and coordinator of the keyboard division at Darton State College. She has been a visiting lecturer by invitation for both the Xi’an Conservatory of Music in China and the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in Hong Kong, receiving excellent responses from both teachers and students.
