About this event


Russell Hancock has delighted audiences across multiple continents as an educator, entertainer, and virtuoso pianist. A child prodigy, he studied under the tutelage of his mother (Kay Gardner Hancock), and by the age of eight he had a thriving performing career touring with USO troupes at army bases and hospitals. His debut as a concert artist came at the age of eleven, when he appeared with the Northwest Chamber Orchestra; subsequent concerto outings brought him to the attention of conductor Frances Walton who promoted the young Hancock in performances of concerto masterworks throughout his native Seattle.

Vivian Pham Nguyen, a freshman at Monte Vista High School in Danville, started playing piano when she was four years old. Currently, she is studying piano at Pleasanton Academy of Music under the professional guidance of her teachers, Ms. Liya Ledyaeva, Ms.Tatiana Kubatina, and Dr. Alexander Lazarev. Vivian has achieved many notable accomplishments with one most memorable - performing at the prestigious Carnegie Hall when she was nine years old as a Grand Prix Prize winner from the New York Concert Festival International Competition. She also performed at other international concert halls including the Mozarteum in Austria and the Concertgebouw in the Netherlands. Vivian appreciates a broad range of music styles and repertoires as each music period presents unique characteristics which she loves to explore and master. Besides piano, she is an active National Speech and Debate Association member in Varsity Division for various tournaments. Vivian enjoys participating in community service activities to make a difference in the community.
