Combining beauty and talent, VANANH is the consummate pianist. Described by Michael Kieran Harvey as ‘she will be a star wherever she goes…’, concert pianist, composer and pianist VANANH performs extensively throughout Australia, Asia, Europe and North America. Born to Vietnamese refugee musicians, VANANH started her piano studies at the tender of age of 13 months, was accepted into the gifted and talented program at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music at aged 4 and went on to being one of the youngest in her generation to obtain her A.Mus.A Diploma at the age of 9, followed by her L.Mus.A Diploma at aged 12. With a string of accolades including Audience Prizewinner at the 13th Bad-Bertrich Sommerklavierfest, Germany as well as the Kawai Piano Award (Australia), VANANH has released a solo piano record (Mise-en-scene) and most recently a classical crossover record (Tonalita). 2013 sees the release of ‘Sentimentales’, the duo CD with Chris Howlett (cello) as well as a second solo piano CD.
VANANH is passionate about making classical music more accessible particularly to younger audiences. It is here that she creates her crossover-multimedia concerts through varying concert platforms as well as performing with her hand-picked rock orchestra and DJ. Her bubbly personality and versatility at the piano draws audiences into her show and captivates the listener with her exquisite touch and care to sonorities of the piano. She is the Ambassador for Heart Reach Australia.
You may not know her name yet, but we’re betting that won’t be the case for long. This young Tacoma-raised singer has the sort of powerful pipes that tend to stun chatty bar bar crowds into silence. Her voice ranges from tender to towering as she covers popular songs by artist Joe Cocker to Adele to Amy Winehouse giving her own soulful flair… Come see Love before her European tour.
