His festival appearances include Yellow Barn, Ravinia Steans Music Institute, Olympic Music Festival, and the Perlman Music Program. Tan serves as faculty assistant to Catherine Cho at the Juilliard School and works with both pre-college and college division students. Highlights of the 2018-19 season include recitals at WQXR, the Juilliard School, and concerto appearances with the New Juilliard Ensemble. Tan holds undergraduate degrees in human developmental and regenerative biology and music from Harvard College where he was awarded the David McCord Prize. He received his master’s degree and artist diploma from the Juilliard School, where he was also a Kovner Fellowship recipient. Tan will begin his doctoral studies at Juilliard in the fall with Donald Weilerstein and Catherine Cho.
