ChaoJun Yang returns to Studio A

Interlochen alumna ChaoJun Yang returns to Studio A after nine years of study and concerts.

The last time we heard ChaoJun Yang in Studio A, she was working on a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for her undergraduate studies at Bard College.

Lo and behold - here she is, nine hears later - and now she has her Master's from Juilliard!

ChaoJun will be doing a series of performances before she heads off to Eastman to pursue her doctorate.

In this edition of Studio A, ChaoJun performs Schubert's Impromptu No. 2 in E-flat major, and the second and third movements of Mozart's Piano Sonata no. 12 in F major.
