Lindemann Young Artist Development Program
Juan José Lázaro
Juan José Lázaro is a Peruvian Russian American pianist originally from New York. The 2022–23 season marks his first year in the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, where he will prepare and perform in the Patron Concert of opera scenes, annual recital series held at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and Met Orchestra Workshop. Recent operatic engagements include Die Zauberflöte with the Merola Opera Program and Idomeneo at Teatro Grattacielo.
He was accepted as vocal fellow with the Lehrer Vocal Institute at the Music Academy of the West in 2020 and was prepared to work on Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortilèges, Menotti’s The Medium, and Hänsel und Gretel. These engagements were unfortunately canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. During his extensive academic career, he has worked as a rehearsal pianist, coach, and performer in a number of productions, including Così fan tutte, Les Pêcheurs de Perles, Frank Loesser’s musical Where’s Charley?, and Il Barbiere di Siviglia, among others. His experience as a coach extends beyond operatic repertoire into art song, where he has collaborated with singers worldwide on recitals and master classes, including recital tours in Bulgaria and Austria.
He is an alumnus of LaGuardia Performing Arts High School and the Mannes College of Music Preparatory Division. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the Juilliard School and a master’s degree from Manhattan School of Music and has completed the first year of his Doctor of Musical Arts at Manhattan School of Music.
