Victoria Lahee Han was born in New York in September 2010, now age 11. She started her piano journey at age four, taking lessons through her church in Hawai’i. By age seven, under the tutelage of Dr. Thomas Yee, Victoria made her competitive debut. Her move to Texas broadened her musical horizons under Mr. Konstantyn Travinskyy. She currently studies with Alex McDonald and Marcy McDonald in Dallas. Ms. Han’s accomplishments include being named as 2022 Grand Prize winner of the Lewisville Lake Symphony Vernell Gregg Young Artists Competition, 2021 recital at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., finalist and honorable mention at the 2020 Kirov International Piano Competition, gold medalist at the 2019 Seattle International Piano Competition, first place at the 2018 Steinway Piano Competition Hawai’i, first place at the 2018 Aloha International Piano Competition and second place at the 2017 Aloha International Piano Competition Hawai’i.
Victoria enjoys being a typical 6th grader at Pioneer Heritage Middle School in Frisco. She loves her classes, friends, ballet, school choir and track. She may be terrible at push-ups, but she can run like the wind. Though most of her time is spent at the piano, Victoria makes time for her family, pets and reading her countless books. She also longs for the beaches and the Aloha of her hometown.
