Han has won top prizes from distinguished international competitions and the highest accolades for her performances in major concert halls in the U.S. and around the world.
Last year, she made European debuts with the Berliner Symphoniker at the Berlin Philharmonie Hall, the Bergamo Festival in Italy, and Salle Cortot in Paris.
This year she embarks on a recital tour to Steinway & Sons’ locations in the U.S. and Europe, Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Slovak Philharmonic Hall, and solos with Philippe Entremont and the Boca Raton Symphonia.
She has been honored with the Gawon Music Award as the most brilliant pianist aged 17 to 31 of any nationality who possesses the most promising potential for global prominence. Following her 2001 grand-prize award in the Korea National Music Competition, the Korean Ministry of Culture named her its "most promising young artist."
Han made her solo debut with the Seoul Philharmonic at age 13 and has since performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Houston Symphony, Banff Festival Orchestra and numerous others. Her performances have also been broadcast on WQXR-New York and on National Public Radio’s "Artist Showcases."
