Currently the Coordinator in Associate Degree in Performance Studies at the Hong Kong Baptist University and a part-time lecturer at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, Helen Cha is a rising local talent who is known for her refined musicianship and academic competency.

 

In 2003, Cha became the first Hong Kong student awarded the Fellowship of the Royal Schools of Music (FRSM) by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.  Cha claimed top prizes at the 12th Hong Kong (Asia) Piano Open Competition Open Class, the concerto competitions at Piano Texas (2006) and at the Eastman School of Music (2007) and Thousand Islands International Chopin Competition (2009).  Cha has performed solo recitals in North America, Europe and the Mainland, and collaborated with various orchestras including the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra and Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, among others.
