Passion and power, expression and sensitivity – words used over and over again in praise of Myriam Avalos.  Her performances and master classes throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia have earned her critical acclaim as a soloist, chamber musician, clinician and pedagogue.  

At the age of three, she gave her first public performance and shortly thereafter was admitted to the National Conservatory of Music in her native city of Lima, Peru, where she studied with Ms. Luisa Negri and Ms. Teresa Quesada. Ms. Avalos made her orchestra debut with the National Symphony Orchestra of Peru at twelve and was awarded full scholarships to the Eastman School of Music and the Peabody Conservatory. A special grant from the Organization of American States allowed her to continue her studies in the US with distinguished pianists Frank Glazer, Ellen Mack, Marilyn Neeley, Menahem Pressler, and Harvey Wedeen, and in Europe with renowned Hungarian pianist, Louis Kentner.

Ms. Avalos holds a Doctoral degree in Chamber Music from the Catholic University of America.  She is a collaborative pianist with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.  She maintains a private studio in Northern Virginia, and is a faculty member and regular performing artist at the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music Summer Festival.  Other appearances and broadcasts include the Phillips Collection, Kennedy Center, Dumbarton Concert Series, Purcell Room in London, Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, Voice of the OAS, Victoria Festival, WGMS Radio, Teatro Municipal de Lima and two State Department-sponsored tours of China and Brazil. 

In 2004, Dr. Avalos was conferred the title of Cultural Ambassador by the Government of Peru.
