Andreea Stoica Concert Pianist 

Andreea Stoica’s journey in music began at the age of five when her father gave her the first piano lessons. Her natural gift was instantly obvious, and in the age of six she started her education at George Enescu Conservatory of Music (Lyceum) in Bucharest. It didn’t take long since she began appearing as a performer and at the age of 12 came the debut with Mozart’s piano concertos with Bucharest Philharmonic Orchestra. Many other recitals and concert tours followed before she came back to study in Bucharest Music University that she graduated from in 1999 and The Conservatorium van Amsterdam where she finished her studies in 2006.  Visit
