Brisbane-born flautist, Lilly Yang, continues her training at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) in 2021 under the guidance of Virginia Taylor. Since commencing the Performance Program at ANAM, Lilly has performed with the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Simone Young, and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra for a successful season of the Bolshoi Ballet’s Jewels.
Some highlights from Lilly’s time in Melbourne so far include winning the Brett Dean Prize for Best Performance of an Australian Work at ANAM (2019) for Carl Vine’s Flute Sonata, being awarded the 2019 Victorian Flute Guild Leslie Barklamb Scholarship, and competing as a finalist in the 2019 Australian Flute Festival Open Flute Competition. Lilly has also performed several times at the Ian Potter Centre for the ANAM at NGV concert series and collaborated alongside world-class guest artists in multiple ANAM projects.
Outside of playing flute, Lilly enjoys exploring the city and trying all the tea-flavoured desserts she can find to compare to her favourites in Brisbane.
