Born in Seoul, Korea, Liza Chung began her musical studies in Santiago, Chile, where she spent much of her youth. She then travelled to Europe and the United States to continue her studies and perfect her piano skills.
As a concert artist, she has given recitals regularly since the age of 14, performing as a soloist with symphony and philharmonic orchestras. Her wide repertoire ranges from solo piano works to chamber music and concerts for piano and orchestra, which distinguishes her among the musicians of her generation.
In 2010, she performed as a guest soloist with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra for the reopening of the Teatro Colón.
She has participated in festivals such as the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival (USA), the San Miguel de Allende Festival (Mexico), and is regularly invited to concert seasons in Chile. She has performed in major venues such as the Steinway Home in New York and the Chicago Cultural Center as well as in Switzerland and Belgium.
Along the way, she studied with Gabriela Pérez in Chile and Edith Fischer in Switzerland. In the United States, where she went to study at the universities of Indiana (Bloomington) and Yale, she was noticed by her mentors, the musicians György Sebök, Reiko Neriki, Janos Starker and Claude Frank.
