Yung-Hsiang Wang

Violinist Yung-Hsiang Wang has performed extensively as a recitalist and chamber musician in the United States, Europe, and Asia, with appearances at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall in New York, Banff Centre in Canada, and festivals including Schleswig-Holstein in Germany and Evian in France.

Since winning First Prize at Taiwan's National Violin Competition at age 13, he has been featured by National Public Television of Taiwan, Nashville Public Television, as well as radio stations in the United States, Denmark, and Taiwan. He is a founding member of Trio Solari (with clarinetist Chad Burrow and pianist Amy I-Lin Cheng), one of the most dynamic chamber groups touring the US today, and was violinist-in-residence of the esteemed Guild of Composers in New York City in 1996-98.

Wang has served on the violin faculty at Vanderbilt University and University of Houston, and has also taught at the Texas Music Festival and the Chamber Music Festival in Denmark. Wang's repertoire ranges from early music, which he performs on a period violin, to contemporary music, of which he is a strong advocate. He also performs regularly with Houston's Grammy-nominated early music group Ars Lyrica as a concertmaster. Wang studied, as a full-scholarship recipient, at the Curtis Institute of Music (B.M., violin), Juilliard School (M.M., orchestral conducting), and Stanford University (Ph.D., musicology and humanities).
