Jacqueline Chen


My name is Jacqueline Chen. I am fifteen years old, a sophomore at The Lawrenceville School, New Jersey. I started playing the piano at age 5 with Mrs. Ursula Ingolfsson. At age 10, my family and I decided I needed more of a challenge, so I went to audition for Professor Clarfield, and fortunately, was accepted. Mrs. Clarfield opened a whole new world of piano playing for me. With exposure to new techniques such as musical artistry and expression, I have been able to take my piano playing to the next level. Mrs. Clarfield has also taught me how to conquer nerves before playing, and my confidence has grown immeasurably.

With Mrs. Clarfield, I have won many awards. Most recently, I won second place in 2017 Young Musicians Competition (Piano) of NJMTA in my age category and third place in 2018. Second prize in 2018 Camerata Artists International Competition. Third Prize winner in 2018 Great Composers Competition for Best Liszt Performance (age 15-18). Second Prize winner in 2018 Great Composers Competition for Best Haydn Performance (age 15-18) The awards are also included six times first prize winner at Crescendo International Competition, six times Grand Prix winner at Music-Fest, five times Gold prize winner at Golden Key Music festival, many times Gold awards in IMPACT competition, Honorable mention at Hartford Chopin International Competition, and many others. I have performed at many prestigious venues including performing at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and the others.

In addition, I play the violin, and I was chosen as concertmaster for a local orchestra, Youth Orchestra of Bucks County. I enjoy playing tennis and rowing for Lawrenceville, too.
