Serene is a concert pianist from a most unexpected trajectory. Though she never attended conservatory, her solo performances have been described by The Paris Review as a “spectacle to match the New York Philharmonic”. Today, Serene has become one of the most talked about young talents in the classical music and beyond.
Beyond concertizing, Serene enjoys other collaborations such as her role as composer for Kayne West’s Opera, premiered at Lincoln Center and Art Basel, as well as pianist and technologist with Blue Man Group’s founder, bringing futuristic innovations at the intersection of music and technology while also highlighting her own audiovisual synesthesia.
Previously, Serene was a computer scientist, Google Engineer, and senior research fellow on various projects, before leaving to fully focus on the piano. In the brief years since, she has cultivated a disciplined, personal, and spiritual approach to her music. With her intersections of many disciplines, plus the “ability to enthrall audiences”, she has grown an international following.
Serene is one of very few self-taught pianists who’ve performed Rachmanioff’s Piano Concerto No. 3, which was described as “unprecedented” by the Liszt Academy. Serene loves sharing the beauty and power of classical music with audiences everywhere in venues ranging from the Vienna Musikverein to a full orchestra in Golden Gate park, to a decommissioned Boeing 747. Serene is a Bösendorfer Artist.
