Matthew Lochner is a Johns Hopkins University freshman, majoring in Philosophy. Mr. Lochner grew up in Los Angeles, California, and he began studying the piano at the age of 8 with Linda Buck, who taught him to love collaborating through music. Recently, he has performed the Beethoven Third and Fourth Concertos and the Schumann Concerto with orchestra under the baton of Maestra Hannah Oh and members of the Los Angeles Symphonic Camerata. Also an avid chamber pianist, Mr. Lochner developed a love for chamber music while attending the Kinhaven School of Music in Weston, Vermont. This semester he founded the JHU Chamber Music Seminar, bringing chamber groups together to perform for and give feedback to one another in the hopes of fostering an intimate community for chamber musicians on the Homewood campus. He has recently participated in master classes with pianists Robert Edward Thies and Chad Bowles. Currently, Mr. Lochner studies at the Peabody Conservatory with Sheng-Yuan Kuan.
