“The Lincoln Center has Wynton Marsalis. The Philly Pops has Peter Nero. And we have Helen Lin.”;
“Electrifying, soothing, energetic, and uplifting, she envelopes her audience with an intensity that includes emotions and exudes joy.”

“Helen Lin is one of the greatest pianists of her generation…..hear classical piano like you never heard it before”---Dover News
Voted one of the top eight musicians in the world by the Web Concert Hall International Competition in 2003, Helen Lin’s professional engagements have ranged from performing as a full-scholarship recipient at the Tanglewood Music Festival, Tchaikovsky Music Festival, and Wagner Music Festival, to touring as a recitalist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician in Germany, France, Austria, Russia, Italy, Spain, the United States, Japan, Korea, China, and her birth place Taiwan. Since 1996, her performances have been broadcast on television and radio stations frequently throughout the United States. The American Music Scholarship Association has made Lin’s performance of Chopin’s E Minor Piano Concerto as an educational videotape. The numerous prizes she has won include “The Young Artist International Piano Competition”, the “IBLA Grand Prize International Piano Competition”, and the “Rising Star Concert Series Piano Competition”.
In December 2000, Lin was invited to perform a series of concerts in Taiwan. That series, held in The National Concert Hall in Taipei, was an outstanding success. Lin’s reputation in Taiwan as a sensational phenomenon caused the tickets for this series to be sold out in the first three days of sale. As a result of her success, the Taiwanese President delivered a congratulatory telegram and the Taipei City Mayor arranged a basket of flowers to be sent before the series even started. In May, 2001, she was invited to play a solo recital in Barcelona, Spain, hosted by Maria Canals International Piano Foundation; a solo recital in Paris, France, hosted by Yamaha Artist Concert Series; two solo recitals and a concerto concert in Muenchen, Germany; a solo recital in Barletta, Italy; and a concerto concert in Como, Italy. Since 2000, Lin has had a collaborative piano-duo relationship with Armenian pianist Sergei Babayan (Casadasu gold medalist and Artist-in-Residence in The Cleveland Institute of Music). Lin has given concerts at the University of Dayton and Miami University at Oxford since 2002 and was the accompanying pianist for the Lima Piano Concerto Competition in March, 2003. Her CD “In Remembrance of September 11th” has become the “text book” at universities for music appreciation classes. Her concert “Dream of Love” was broadcast on PBS TV in the Fall of 2005. Some of Lin’s recent concerts have included the privilege of performing on the Steinway & Sons “Rhapsody” piano (a specially designed art-case piano in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of George Gershwin); two solo concerts sponsored by Mercedes-Benz in 2006 and 2007; concerts at San Angelo State Museum, TX and master class at San Angelo State University where she performed with Dr. John Irish; a private concert for the Consulate General of Austria and the honor of performing for The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, while he received the Union League of Philadelphia’s Gold Medal Award in 2008; an invitation to perform a solo concert (where she peformed the virtuosic piano tone poem "Schuylkill at Night" composed by Dr. David Laganella) and teach a master class at Wesley College, Delaware in 2009.

In 2011, Lin was invited by world renowned soprano Dr. Shudong Braamse (Voice Professor at Southeastern University, Florida and Weifang University, Shandong, China) for an extensive China concert tour, locations including Shandong University, Weihai; Weifang University, Shandong; and the prestigious Shenzhen Concert Hall, Guangzhou. In May 2012, Lin gave a series of concerts and master classes in Beijing, Jinan, Taian, Weifang, Zibo, Shenzhen and Zhaoqing where she also premiered works including John Adams's "Phrygian Gates", Tristan Murail's "Territoires de L'oubli", Jeremiah Bornfield's "Trillium", Carol Worthey's "Fantasia" and "Pastorale" hosted by Dr. Shane O'Shea (Dulwich College) in China. At the same month, Lin was the American judge at The Asia Pacific International Piano Competition, Taipei, Taiwan. In October 2012, Lin was the featured pianist at "The 1st Diversity Project" hosted by Dulwich College Beijing where she performed several concerts including a performance of Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 with Beijing Youth Orchestra under the baton of Shane O'Shea and the China Premiere of "Tangled Impressions" by American composer Anthony Paul de Ritis.
Lin’s performance has been described as “charismatic, contagious, of the highest level from which she communicates the essence of music combined with her vivid imagination and outstanding pianism….” “…unique as she exhibits great individuality, command, and unusually strong musical conviction with fiery temperament.” Besides her career as a concert pianist, she has been a Master Teacher and Artist-in-Residence at the Community Conservatory of Music in Doylestown, Pennsylvania since 2006. Lin serves as a piano chair at Alvernia College and Albert Conservatory since 2007. Lin was also the Resident Artist for Steinway & Sons pianos at Premier Pianos in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2005. In addition, Lin was a member of the piano faculty for the Preparatory Department, an opera coach for the Opera Department, and a staff accompanist for the String Department at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. There, she held students’ recitals regularly under the sponsorship of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Premier Pianos. Currently, she is a piano professor at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan; a guest visiting professor at Weifang Univerity (Weifang, Shandong), Taian Univeristy (Taian, Shandong), University of Technology (Zibo, Shandong), and Zhaoqing University (Zhaoqing, Guangzhou), China. After receiving a Master of Music degree at Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, she continued her studies under the multiple gold prize winners and most wanted piano teachers in the United States, the Pridonoff Duo and the eminent scholar James Tocco for the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance and Literature.
