 Yana Groves made her New York debut in May, 2012, as soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto K.488 with the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra.

Prior to that time she had accompanied vocal soloists and a number of choral groups, as well as participating in performances of Handel's Dido and Aeneas and the Saint-Saens Christmas Oratorio.

The breadth of her musicality has extended to productions of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.   


A native of Ukraine, Groves is currently in the Piano Performance Graduate Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, under the tutelage of the Van Cliburn medal-winner pianist Christopher Taylor, and was recently name a co-winner of the Irvin Shain woodwind-piano duo competition at the UW.  Earlier she was nurtured by Karen Becker, Glazirina Tatiana, and through master classes with Evgenia Tzarov and Helen Huang.
