Pamela Viktoria Pyle has been recognized for her interpretations of the chamber music literature since she was first engaged as a principal pianist in the studios of Dorothy DeLay and then Itzhak Perlman at The Juilliard School.

As an award-winning soloist and chamber recitalist, Ms. Pyle has performed throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Brazil. Recent engagements include concerts and a guest faculty position at the University of Shandong in Wei-Hai, China, and performances and masterclasses in Brazil at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas.
