Even as a child, MARY AU was an unabashed lover of music as well as of food. Her mission is to make classical music part of the fabric of everyday life, in settings where both audience and artist can share in the joy of live music.

About Mary Wai-Yin Au

Mary AuMy parents named me Mary, after Queen Mary Hospital, where they fell in love. My paternal grandfather named me *Wai-Yin, Wai* for intelligence and *YIN* for virtuous, wise, capable, dutiful, and talented (from www.Zhongwen.com); a tall order for me to live up to.

I received my formal education in Los Angeles, London and Hong Kong. Apart from my work as a performing artist, coach and teacher, I also had the good fortune to work in the financial arena, specializing in the entertainment, not-for-profit and business litigation industries.

My professional experience at the Recording Academy (the GRAMMY Awards) brought me in contact with many world reknowned GRAMMY winning recording artists such as Van Cliburn, Rostropovich and Sting. Their encouragement and recognition of my musical talents led me to pursue my passion to perform music, especially for people who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend live classical performances.

To have the opportunity to share my music with others, and bring joy to those whose paths I cross, is one of the greatest blessing ever bestowed on me.
