about me

Music cultivates empathy through diving into others' experiences in tandem with a deeper discovery of the self. It can cross cultural lines, underscore protests, and champion every-day stories. If we listen closely and feel deeply, there are echoes of the multifaceted human existence in music written both hundreds of years ago and right now. It is my belief that it is a choice to place notation within a context that is uniquely meaningful, that might have a. place in impacting the world of today rather than recreating the world of yesterday.

These are my guiding forces as I seek to communicate as an artist, mentor, and entrepreneur. Thank you for your support, for listening, and I hope to play a role in allowing music to be a part of your life as well.


with sincerity and always yours,


Tracy Wong is pursuing her Doctorate of Musical Arts in piano performance at the University of Southern California, studying under Antoinette Perry. She also currently holds a full-time position as the department coordinator for the Colburn School's Center for Innovation and Community Impact (CICI), which aims to break barriers in community engagement while simultaneously furthering artistic career development for undergraduate and graduate students. While her first love has always been music, she has also dedicated much of her academic career to enhancing her pedagogy and performance with related industries. As such, she also holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and concentrations in business entrepreneurship, music education, arts leadership, and arts administration. It is her personal philosophy that the arts serve as a method of communication between the self and the world at large. Pursuant to that communication, she strives to spark curiosity, drive, and self-awareness in her teaching, performances, and professional life.

Tracy debuted as a soloist performing Beethoven's Concerto No. 1 with the Saint Petersburg State Symphony in Russia at the age of nine. She has gone on. to perform with many orchestras including the Louisville Symphony and Chicago Ars Viva Symphony. Her accolades include first place at the Cincinnati World Piano Competition, Delta Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Competition, and the Joseph Shelhardt Award at the Hellam Young Artist Competition. As a performer, Tracy has been featured as a soloist at venues including Lincoln Center, the Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace, and Carnegie Hall. She is also a National YoungArts alumna and part of the National Foundation for the Advancement of Artists. 

Outside of being an active performer, Tracy has also worked with a diverse array of arts organizations in order to broaden access to music. Prior to her work with the Colburn School, she worked with National Public Radio's "From the Top," the San Francisco Opera's Education Department, the Cincinnati Arts Association, and the Pasadena Symphony and Pops in a variety of roles including professional development, media management, scholarship competitions, and special events. As a teacher, administrator, and performer, this has given her a comprehensive view on what is expected and needed of professional musicians today.
