Monica Chung



Aloha and thank you for visiting KauaiPianoMon. I am a pianist from New York City, the vibrant city that never sleeps. In 2013 I decided to move to a very different kind of island. Fortunate to call Kauai home, I am dedicated to creating a rich arts scene, integrating the whole world with the intimate culture and sounds of Kauai.

Ensemble Henrietta is a Kauai/New York City collaborative group, with the intent to create lively, intimate performances of unique programming. Our upcoming Night of Chamber Music, presented by the Kauai Concert Association is a collaboration of players from Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, Boston, NYC, and Kauai. We will conclude the night as a Chamber Orchestra, performing Ernest Bloch Concerto Grosso No.1. The ensemble is named after the cello, Henrietta, which originated in Germany, lived in New York, and ended up on Kauai 25 years later.
