Fish Memorial Prize and The Buffalo Chamber Music Society Prize, and was named John French Violin Chair at YCA.

Indonesian pianist Janice Carissa has been praised for radiating “the multicolored highlights of a mature pianist” (Philadelphia Inquirer) and having a “fleet-fingered touch that is particularly impressive,” as well as for her artistry that “conveys a vivid story rather than a mere showpiece” (Chicago Classical Review).
