About the Artist

20-year-old pianist Avery Gagliano captures audiences with her sensitivity, emotional depth, and musical expression. She first gained international attention when she won first prize at the 10th National Chopin Piano Competition in 2020. Avery was the only American semifinalist at the 18th International Chopin Competition. In November 2021, she made her Carnegie Hall debut and released her first album “Reflections” on the Steinway & Sons label.

An alumna of the Verbier Festival Academy and the Lang Lang International Music Foundation’s Young Scholars Program, Avery is a four-year winner of the US Chopin Foundation Scholarship and has made several appearances at the WRTI Performance Studio and on National Public Radio’s From The Top. She was recently selected as one of two piano fellows at the 2022 Bravo!Vail Music Festival.

Born in Washington, D.C., Avery studied with Marina Alekseyeva during her early years. Avery currently resides in Philadelphia and studies with Robert McDonald at the Curtis Institute of Music. She received additional instruction at Curtis from Gary Graffman and Jonathan Biss.
