Julia Hamos, 16, began piano studies with Krisztina Kiss at the age of 3˝. At age 8 she won an award at the Chopin Piano Competition, Polish Consulate, New York. In 2004 Júlia was admitted to the Juilliard School Pre-College Division. She has performed at the Juilliard School and at numerous venues in the New York metropolitan area, including Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Steinway Piano Gallery (New York and Paramus, NJ), and solo performances with chamber and full orchestra at Tenafly JCC’s Thurnauer School of Music. In the summer of 2006, she attended the Aspen Music Festival where she studied with Herbert Stessin and Rita Sloan. In December 2006, she performed Bach and Rachmaninoff pieces at a gala dinner in the Hungarian Embassy, Washington, D.C., and in April 2007, she performed a full solo recital of works by Bach, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Liebermann and Bartók at the Hungarian House in New York City. This summer, Júlia attended the Eastern Music Festival five-week program in Greensboro, North Carolina. On July 18, she was selected to perform two piano pieces at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington, DC.

Ms. Hamos is daughter and granddaughter in the well known Hámos family in our community. We are pleased to present her and introduce her to our community.
