Miranda Wong is ever passionate about the music of the Bach and ever curious about the complexities of the contemporary idiom.

Her solo career has taken her across Canada, the United States, England, and often before the microphones of CBC Radio. In the ten years as pianist of the contemporary music ensemble, Aventa, her performances have embraced world premieres (notably chamber works by the eminent composers, Peter Maxwell Davies and Michael Finnissy), and appearances at music festivals in Europe and North America. 

She holds degrees and diplomas from the University of Victoria; the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London; and the Peabody Conservatory. Robin Wood, Leonard Shure, and Leon Fleisher sit as the triumvirate of her musical inspiration and education.

The wish to share in discovering the small, and large, ideas that connect life to music ensures a place for teaching in her professional activities.  Miranda Wong currently serves on the faculty of the School of Music at the University of British Columbia.
