Kyle Orth



Hailed as “spine-tingling” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram) and “breathtaking” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), American-Latino pianist Kyle Orth possesses unusual virtuosity and artistic sensitivity. He has distinguished himself globally as a captivating soloist and chamber musician. The Dallas Morning News praised his complete musicianship for being “thoughtfully proportioned and detailed, with plenty of virtuosity when called for.”  

Since his orchestral debut at the age of fifteen, Orth has appeared as a soloist with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Israel Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Oaxaca (Mexico), Orquesta Sinfónica de Arequipa (Peru), and Springfield Symphony Orchestra, performing under the batons of Jaap van Zweden, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Hugh Wolff, and others. He performed Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra on their subscription series, a performance the Star Tribune described as “thrillingly visceral.” As a chamber musician, Orth studied and performed in festivals such as the Perlman Music Program and Ravinia Steans Music Institute. He holds over twenty first place awards from national and international music competitions, including Grand Prize in the Friends of the Minnesota Orchestra Young Artist Competition and First Prize in the Dallas International Piano Competition

Orth pursued his undergraduate studies at Texas Christian University as a Nordan Young Artist. He received his MM and DMA from New England Conservatory, where he was awarded the Presser Foundation Graduate Music Award and Presidential Scholarship. His primary mentors were Wha Kyung Byun, Russell Sherman, John Owings, Alex McDonald, and Marcy McDonald. He is currently on the piano faculty at Wheaton College Conservatory of Music.
