Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Vienna Teng. A native Californian, Vienna began playing classical piano at age 5. While pursuing a degree in computer science at Stanford, she joined a student-run a cappella group. She began recording her compositions and eventually released in her début album, Waking Hour. After graduating in 2000, Vienna worked as a software engineer at Cisco Systems, but she continued to write music and perform in her free time. In 2002, she left Cisco to focus on her musical career. In 2010, Vienna announced to her fans that she had been accepted into the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan. Through the program, she received both an MBA and an MS. We had the pleasure of speaking with Vienna Teng as a part of the Concerts and Conversations series with AMP Concerts in Albuquerque.
