Born in Tianjin, China, Hanyi Meng began her piano studies when she was four. She earned her first international prize at the 6th Asian Youth Music Competition in 2007.
Meng has resided in the United States since 2010. Alongside her activity as a pianist, she has studied the harpsichord, clavichord, and pianoforte. During her studies at Oberlin College and NYU Steinhardt she has held numerous public performances, including degree recitals, master classes appearances, and chamber music showcases.
A virtuosic pianist with an interest in the intersection of different cultures, Meng is currently exploring works influenced by traditional Chinese music in Western music genres. She is pursuing a master’s degree at NYU Steinhardt, where she studies with Artist Faculty member Alexander Kobrin. Also interested in art administration and management, she is the Development Director at the French-American Piano Society, a non-profit arts organization that prompts cultural exchange between pianists from France and the United States.
