About the artists - 

Mia Bramel, 19, is a sophomore at Columbia College majoring in Math-Computer Science. She began playing piano at the age of four with Inga Kapouler. She has been studying with her current teacher, Golda Vainberg-Tatz, for six years. 

In 2016, she made her orchestral debut as a winner at the Kaufman Music Center’s Concerto Competition, performing the first movement of Mozart’s Concerto K. 453 at Merkin Concert Hall. In 2018, she became a National YoungArts Foundation Winner in Classical Music. She has also participated in the Puerto Rico International Piano Festival at the Conservatorio de Música in San Juan.

At Columbia University, Mia adores the Music Performance Program, especially chamber music and Dr. Baczewska’s Master Class on Wednesdays. She also is a concert producer on the board of Columbia Classical Performers, a club dedicated to making classical music more accessible to college students. In her free time, she loves going to museums, cooking, and sight-reading music with friends.


Angela Yu, who hails from Shanghai, is a sophomore at Columbia College double majoring in Economics and French & Francophone Studies. She is also a participant in the Columbia-Juilliard exchange program, through which she gets to pursue both her academic and musical interests. She is currently studying with Professor Matti Raekallio at Juilliard. Angela is passionate about all kinds of performing arts and she believes that everything is interconnected. Besides playing the piano, she enjoys taking theater classes and being a part of the Columbia University Ballet Ensemble. One of Angela's biggest hopes is to make music more accessible to our community. As the vice president of Columbia Musical Mentors Collaborative, Angela works with other members to bring free music education to students at Public School 145. Outside of class and extracurricular commitments, you can find Angela lining up for a salmon bagel at John Jay dining hall, or buying apple muffins at the weekly Columbia Greenmarket. 


All events are sponsored by Columbia University's Music Performance Program and are free and open to the public.

Mid-Day Music @ Columbia offers live music to a general audience, following the tradition established by Aaron Warner and Isidor Isaac Rabi, great lovers of music whose memories live on at Faculty House.
