Gao Hong is a renowned Chinese pipa master, composer, and performer. Having already received accolades such as the Beijing Art Cup, she graduated from Beijing’s esteemed Central Conservatory of Music after studying with pipa master Lin Shicheng. She soon moved to the United States, where she has performed at multiple notable festivals and concerts and continued to amass an impressive array of awards and honours. Gao is a recipient of the prestigious Bush Artist Fellowship, a 2018 Sally Award, and became the only artist in any genre to be awarded five McKnight Artist Fellowships for Performing Musicians. Also the author of the first English language pipa method book, Gao’s career is as colourful and varied as her music. A luminary steeped in the art of collaboration, Gao has performed across the globe and visited genres such as Afro-American jazz, bluegrass, klezmer, and pop, to name just a few.
