Amy Kawa Posner

Adjunct Artist in Music

Pianist Amy Kawa Posner made her Lincoln Center debut after winning the Juilliard Concerto Competition at age 19. She has performed as soloist and chamber musician at venues throughout the New York Metropolitan area including Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Steinway Hall, and the Kosciuszko Foundation. Ms. Posner earned her bachelor of music at Juilliard where she was a recipient of the Robert Fabian Scholarship in Piano. Her major teachers were Martin Canin and Yoheved Kaplinsky, and she studied chamber music with Bruce Brubaker, Jonathan Feldman, Albert Fuller, and Felix Galimir. A subsequent academic interest in the intersection of music, law, and arts policy led Ms. Posner to earn a master’s degree in arts administration from Boston University, and a Juris Doctor cum laude from Syracuse University College of Law. In addition to teaching at Vassar, Ms. Posner is also the managing attorney and founder of OpusLegal—A Virtual Law Office for the Arts, which provides affordable, accessible and compassionate legal services to artists and arts organizations throughout New York State.
