As a child growing up in Australia, David Fung was brought along as an unwitting audience member to his older brotherís violin lessons. He was 5 the day he spoke up as his 7-year-old brother was working on a particularly challenging passage with his teacher. Having never played the violin, David tackled the passage with great precision, and the teacher recommended that young David start lessons.

Thus began his first foray in music. The brothers played duets on family musical nights, until David tried his hand at the piano. He would continue studying both instruments for years, garnering success in competitions on violin and piano. His passion narrowed to piano during his teen years.

David won the Australian Broadcasting Corporationís Young Performer of the Year Award and later went on to earn top prizes at the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition in Brussels and the Arthur Rubinstein Piano International Masters Competition in Tel Aviv. He also earned Rubinsteinís Chamber Music and Mozart Prizes.

As a recitalist and soloist, he has appeared with the Cleveland Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic and Symphony Orchestras, the National Orchestra of Belgium, the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra, the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. With smaller forces, Fung has performed with the Israel, Melbourne, St. Paul, and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestras.

Fung is the first piano graduate of the Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles and has terminal degrees from Yale University and the Hannover Hochschule für Musik, Theater, und Medien.
