Lucas Amory started playing the piano at 4.  A music-lover from an early age, the 8-year-old Lucas was published in the New York Times when he sent chief critic Anthony Tommasini his personal lists of the ten greatest composers and his ten favorite ones.  Now a junior at Stuyvesant High School, Lucas is also enrolled at Juilliard's Pre-College program, where he is a student of Julian Martin. Winner of the 2019 Lyra Music Young Artists Competition, Lucas has also received prizes from the 92nd St. Y Concerto Competition, the Stony Brook International Competition, and the Bravura Philharmonic Concerto Competition. He has performed at the 92nd St. Y, Weill Recital Hall, and multiple times at Alice Tully Hall. He also co-directs the Bach to BACH Project in Lower New York, conducts, and enjoys ping-pong, chess, and bubble tea in his off time.
