Hilda Huang studies the piano with Deputy Dean Melvin Chen at Yale College, and has previously studied with Director Emeritus John McCarthy (piano) and Dr. Corey Jamason (Harpsichord).

Huang became the first American to win the top prize in the International Bach Competition in Würzburg in 2010, and in 2013 was named a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts. 

She recieved a Davidson Fellowship for her work on Bach, and made her debut recording with the late Maestro Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops under the label TELARC International. She has also appeared on the documentary film "Bach and Friends" and with the Philharmonia Baroque, Symphony Parnassus and San Francisco Chamber Orchestra in concert.

Now a freshman at Yale College, Huang plans to pursue pre-medical studies alongside interests in philosophy and mathematics. 

She has also begun experimenting with Wushu, as part of her extracurricular escapades.
