Anna Khanina has been praised for her “brilliant technique, musicality, and irreproachable taste.” (Ibbenbuehrener Zeitung).

Ms. Khanina enjoys a successful performing career. She regularly appears as a soloist and with chamber ensembles in Europe, United States, Canada, and Israel. She has performed at such venues as 92 Y Kaufman Hall, Symphony Space, Staller Center for Arts, Trinity Church, Yamaha Piano Salon in New York, Dame Myra Hess Concert Series, Pianoforte Chicago, Ganz Hall at Roosevelt University, DePaul University in Chicago, Georg Phillip Telemann Hall, Muendener Schloss, in Germany.

Anna Khanina’s long list of awards include the prizes at Val Tidone International Piano Competition, the Second International Piano Competition in Panama, the Seventh International Competition Ciutat de Carlet, the Grieg Competition in Oslo, the Nueva Acropolis Competition in Madrid, and the Classica Nova Competition in Hannover.

Ms. Khanina is a sought after chamber musician and collaborator. She has been invited to Braunschweig Classix Festival, Schleswig-Hollstein Music Festival, Hochschule fuer Musik und Theater Hannover Chamber Music Festival, the Norfolk Festival, Banff Music Centre, and Festival Internacional de Musica Erudita de Piracicaba in Brazil.

Despite her busy performing career, Ms. Khanina remains a dedicated teacher. She has been a Teaching Assistant at SUNY Stony Brook and is currently on the faculty of the Piano School at 92nd Street Y as well as Bloomingdale School of Music. Every year her students successfully participate at New York State School Music Association, Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, and the Royal Conservatory of Music examinations.

Anna started her musical education at the age of five, and in 1996 she graduated with honors from the famous Gnessin School of Music in Moscow for gifted children, where she studied with Lidia Grigorjeva. Upon her graduation, she immigrated to Germany, where she began studies with Professor Bernd Goetzke at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover. In 2001 she earned a Master’s degree from the same institution, and subsequently went on to pursue an Artist Diploma in the Soloist-Class in 2001. At the same time, while pursuing her studies at the Hochschule für Musik, Anna simultaneously pursued a second Master’s degree in Performance at the Gnessin Academy of Music, where she graduated with honors in 2004.

In 2007 she completed a Piano Performance Diploma at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, where she studied as a full-scholarship student of Solomon Mikowsky. In 2014, Ms. Khanina graduated from the Doctoral Program at the State University of New York at Stony Brook where she was full-scholarship student of Gilbert Kalish.
