Lyndon Ji


2023 & 2022 Fellow

Lyndon Ji is honored to be returning this summer to Bowdoin, which holds great sentimental value as the first music festival he attended while pursuing his B.S. in Mathematics at Yale. Bowdoin also happens to be where he met his long-time partner, with whom he now co-parents a beautiful feline by the name of Moomoo (pictures and videos abound). From 2016-2018, he was employed as one of the inaugural Swensen Fellows at Yale. During this time, he continued to study piano with Wei-Yi Yang, Elizabeth Parisot, and Yevgeny Yontov. He subsequently attended the University of Michigan to pursue an M.M. with Logan Skelton. In the middle of this program, he was fortunate enough to study as a Toshizo Watanabe Fellow at the Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies in Yokohama, Japan. He is currently completing an Artist Diploma at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music under the guidance of Roberto Plano and will begin his DMA at the Yale School of Music this coming fall. 

In recent seasons, he has performed for the American Liszt Society annual conference and has been invited to Kneisel Hall, Pianofest in the Hamptons, and the Virtuoso & Belcanto festival in Lucca, among others. His early training was completed with Chun Chi An in his hometown of Carmel, IN, where he also performed with the Carmel Symphony Orchestra at the Palladium. Other eminent artists he has worked with include Ning An, Boris Berman, Martin Canin, Julian Martin, Robert McDonald, Yong-Hi Moon, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Outside of music, his interests range from manual espresso to video games to crosswords and attempting to train his cat.
