Bryant Kong  

Bryant Kong, pianoBryant Kong is a composer, pianist, and humorist. He is the founder of Stuffed Penguin Music and serves as its President and CEO. A specialist in neglected classical repertoire—particularly the music of American composer Edward MacDowell—he performs in solo piano and chamber music concerts. The Poetry of Donald Rumsfeld is his first song cycle.

An entrepreneur by nature, Mr. Kong has built his career by creating initiatives to solve unmet needs. When his college did not have a concerto competition, he assembled his own orchestra so that he could perform one. Recently, he founded Stuffed Penguin to bring music neglected by the classical music industry to listeners neglected by that industry. Mr. Kong has supported other new initiatives, for example competing in the inaugural International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs held by the Van Cliburn Foundation in Fort Worth, TX.

An avid sportsman, Mr. Kong won a medal in international track and field competition at Gay Games V, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and completed the California International Marathon in a driving winter rainstorm. He holds an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School and a BA from Carleton College, Northfield, MN.
