Pianist Nicholas Ho hails from Singapore and graduated with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance (Distinction) from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, where he studied with Professor Edward Auer. He had previously studied with American pianist Tedd Joselson in Singapore.
In 2006, Nicholas appeared in the Channel News Asia mini-documentary series, “Wonder Kids of Asia”, and went on to have his concerto debut with Mozart’s 14th Piano Concerto in 2007. He had subsequently made several concerto appearances with various orchestras in Singapore, including Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto, Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto, and most recently, the world premiere performance of Robert Casteel’s Concerto pour piano et orchestra de chambre. His performance of Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto was described by The Straits Times as “electrifying”. Also an avid recitalist, Nicholas has given numerous recitals in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, for various charitable causes. In addition, he has also given Asian and American premieres of new solo piano works. Nicholas was a Piano Fellow at the 2018 Manchester Music Festival, where he performed major chamber works including Schumann’s Piano Quintet, Shostakovich’s Piano Trio no. 1, and Milhaud’s La Creation du Monde.
Amongst various accolades, Nicholas was awarded the Jury Special Prize at the 5th Asian Youth Music Competition Open Category in 2012, First Prize at the 2015 Edward Auer Summer Workshop Solo Competition, and Second Prize at the 2018 Young Concert Artists International Audition. Nicholas is currently a second year Masters student at the Chicago College of Performing Arts, under the tutelage of Edward Auer and Junghwa Moon Auer.
Also a composer, Nicholas completed an original suite for piano, Inner States of Mind, in 2018, and is currently working on his Sonata for Violin and Piano. His most recent composition, Elegy – In Memory of Rosalie, a flute and cello duet, was premiered in Banff, Canada, in February 2019. Previous works include Two Études (2017), which he premiered in Northbrook, IL in September 2017. Nicholas studies composition privately with eminent Singaporean composer Tan Chan Boon. Nicholas also enjoys solving puzzles; he developed the “Sandwich Method”, a direct-solving method for higher order Rubik’s cubes (4x4x4 and above).
