Praised by The New York Times as a pianist with “assurance and vitality,” Woo made his Lincoln Center debut at 19, performing at Alice Tully Hall with the Juilliard Orchestra under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin. He has collaborated with conductors Daniel Hege, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, and Tito Muñoz in solo appearances with the Houston and Fort Worth Symphonies, and the Music Academy of the West Festival Orchestra. Other recent performances include solo recital engagements throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and Europe.
Woo has been featured on The McGraw Hill Financial Young Artists Showcase broadcasted on WQXR in New York, and has performed in venues such as Carnegie’s Weill and Zankel Recital Halls. An avid chamber musician, he has made appearances at the Brooklyn Chamber Music Society, La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest, Gamper Festival of Contemporary Music, Bowdoin International Music Festival, and Juilliard’s ChamberFest. Other accolades include prizes at the High Point University, Ima Hogg, Iowa and Juilliard’s Gina Bachauer piano competitions.
Born in Arlington, Virginia, Woo has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music from the Juilliard School where he studied with Robert McDonald, and a Doctoral of Musical Arts degree from Peabody Institute where he studied with Yong Hi Moon. A member of the faculty at the University of Georgia Hugh Hodgson School of Music since late 2021, previously he held positions at Elizabeth City State University and Peabody Institute.
