Pianist Janice Carissa Joins the Roster
Opus 3 Artists is pleased to welcome pianist Janice Carissa for general management. A Gilmore Young Artist and winner of Salon de Virtuosi, Janice Carissa has “the multicolored highlights of a mature pianist“ (Philadelphia Inquirer) and “strong, sure hands” (Voice of America) that “convey a vivid story rather than a mere showpiece.” (Chicago Classical Review) Her artistry has been showcased at an array of renowned stages, including the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, United Nations, Kennedy Center, Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, Louis Vuitton Foundation, and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
Following her Philadelphia Orchestra debut at age sixteen, Janice has substituted Andre Watts as soloist with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and gone on to perform with the Kansas City, Amarillo, and Des Moines symphonies, among others. In 2023, she will be a featured soloist with Sacramento Philharmonic, Promusica Chamber Orchestra, Curtis Symphony Orchestra, and the Tacoma and Battlecreek symphonies.
Janice’s burning passion for chamber music has lead her to collaborations with Vadim Gluzman, Miriam Fried, Paul Neuebauer, Lucy Shelton, David Shifrin, Peter Wiley, among other distinguished musicians; and appearances at Marlboro, North Shore, Ravinia, Caramoor, and Kneisel Hall festivals.
A pupil of Gary Graffman and Robert McDonald, Janice graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music and is presently studying at The Juilliard School. When away from the piano, Janice is an avid foodie and loves going on strolls with her camera.
