New York City’s finest pianists perform most summer weekdays in Bryant Park, free to the public! Join on the park’s Upper Terrace for a different musician weekly.
Yuka Aikawa, pianist/composer, began playing piano at the age of five in her native Japan, and went on to earn a B.A. in piano performance at Kunitachi College of Music in Tokyo. In college, while studying classical piano with Yasuko Shinoi and Toyoko Kreutzer, a friend gave her some recordings by Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans. As soon as she listened to them, she became interested in jazz.
