Ann Chang is an active soloist and lecturer in the U.S. and Europe. Her curiosity and wide-ranging musical interests have taken her in many directions, allowing her to forge a unique career and establish a rare reputation. She is in great demand as an artist and teacher, as well as for chamber music alliances, in which she plays with some of the world's leading instrumentalists. Her recent appointment as Fulbright Scholar to Belgium (Brussels) has given her an opportunity to expand her interest in the study of Classic Performance Practice. In performances, she often plays the fortepiano, a period instrument of the great masters Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. In 2001, Ann founded the Meadowlark Music Festival, and created the artistic vision for this summer series of chamber music performances. In 2008, she was appointed Artistic Director of the Lied Center for Performing Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her constantly expanding horizons have led her to become a remarkable exponent of New Tango and other traditional Latin music, reflected in her collaboration with Russia’s Rastrelli Cello Quartet in the recent recording of “Cello in Buenos Aires.” In addition to her busy career as a performer and presenter, Ann is Artist-in-Residence at the University of Nebraska School of Music. She also serves as Vice-Chair of Woods Charitable Fund, which supports public education and advocacy to effect positive social change and improve opportunities for citizens of Nebraska. Her diverse career remains truly international, with upcoming performances in Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Croatia and Argentina; and in celebrated U.S. venues in Spokane, Chicago and Portland. Ann resides in Lincoln, Nebraska, with her children, Sarah, Hannah and Peter.
