Adria Ye

August 16, 2013

A fifteen-year-old's debut

When pianist Adria Ye was 11 years old, she and her family moved from her home just outside Portland, Oregon to New York City. She became a student at the Juilliard School, one of the great music conservatories in the world. On Friday's Performance Today, Adria Ye will make her PT debut on stage in Aspen with a Tarantelle by Franz Liszt.
