Angela Au began her piano lessons at the age of 6. After 9 months of learning, she won her first prize, a grand championship, and went on to break all records by winning over a dozen championships, including China's first nationally-televised 1984 Pearl River Prize: Guangzhou- Hong Kong-Macau Piano Invitation Competition. In June 1986, Angela made her debut as Hong Kong's youngest-ever soloist in a piano recital sponsored by the German Consulate General. In October, she was chosen to play for H.M. Queen Elizabeth II to honor her Royal visit to Hong Kong. In January 1987, she became the first Hong Kong-born pianist ever admitted to the Curtis Institute of Music, studying with Gary Graffman and Eleanor Sokoloff.
In the 1989/99 season, Angela started concertizing and made her debut tour in the Boston area. In January 1990, Angela appeared with the world-famous Philadelphia Orchestra, performing Mozart's Piano Concerto K.488. She was hailed as the cream of the cream by the conductor. In February 1991, Angela made her London debut at the Royal Festival Hall, performing with the London Mozart players in the presence of H.R.H. Princess Alexandra.
She first appeared with Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra in its curtain-raising concerts for the 1991/1992 season at Shatin and Tuen Mun. In the 1992/93 season, Angela was active a series of concert engagements, including recitals in the prestigious Lane Series in Vermont and Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts in Chicago and orchestral appearance with the Philadelphia Pops.
On completion of her high school education and musical studies at Curtis, Angela decided to enrich her musical intelligence with a broadly-educated mind. She just completed a degree in economics at Harvard while refining her artistry with the guidance of Mr. Russell Sherman.
For the past few seasons, Angela has been touring extensively as a solo artist in North America while managing a busy career as a Sales & Marketing Director for an environmentally-friendly building products company.
