Opus 3 Artists welcomes the winner of the First China International Music Competition, pianist Tony Siqi Yun for North American representation.

Tony Siqi Yun was born in Toronto, Canada in 2001. He is currently enrolled at The Juilliard School Pre-College Division where he studies piano, composition and conducting.

The young pianist can already look back at an extraordinary concert career. His outstanding debut with the China Philharmonic Orchestra at the Third Polish Culture Festival was followed by an invitation to tour with the same orchestra in 2015. Yun appeared with the China Philharmonic Orchestra again in the 2018-2019 season including the 2019 CCTV New Year's Concert. In 2018, he performed with the Cleveland Orchestra at the final round of the Thomas and Evon Cooper International Piano Competition and won First Prize and the Audience Prize. After a virtuosic performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the jury announced him the winner of the First China International Music Competition.

Yun has toured Ireland, Spain, China, and the United States. His recital highlights include the Salle Cortot Concert Hall in Paris, Opera & and Concert Hall of CCOM, The Juilliard School, New York's Steinway Hall and the Heidelberger Frühling Music Festival. He has been featured in the China Daily News, From The Top, and WQXR.
