Hugh Sung is the Director of Instrumental Accompaniment and Student Recitals Series at The Curtis Institute of Music. He is a marvelous pianist who collaborated with The American Quartet, the Diaz Trio, Jeffrey Khaner, Julius Baker, Hilary Hahn, Leila Josefowicz, composers Jennifer Higdon, Robert Maggio, Harold Boatrite, and violinist Aaron Rosand.

Hugh also writes an important blog, - Music Meets Tech. It focuses on helping musicians adopt technology to enhance their art and lifestyle.

At Curtis, Hugh single-handedly developed, ground up, an extensive database that automates all concert activity. Real-time data then feeds into various touch points within the organization. In the corporate world, such enterprise systems are quite expensive to implement.

With about 100 Curtis student concerts per season at the school alone, the analytics enable Hugh help students evaluate repertoire from past performances and develop new ideas.

Garr writes an excellent blog, Presentation Zen. His post, Jazz and the Art of Connecting, I think is particularly meaningful to a lot of musicians.
