Sheng-Tsung Wang

Violin

Violinist Sheng-Tsung Wang gave his solo debut at the age of thirteen, performing with the Bremen Symphony Orchestra of Germany. Of the concert, Die Norddeutsche marveled that Wang “performed the difficult passages with astonishing understanding, as well as interpreting the lyric qualities with sweetness, bravura, and inspired tone.” Dr. Wang presented three evenings of solo and chamber performances in Carnegie Hall in 1999, under the auspices of the La Gesse Foundation. A more recent performance at Carnegie Hall with the Gemini Piano Trio was reviewed by notable New York City music critic Edith Eisler, who praised that the performers, “with such a high level of unanimity and rapport...were concerned only with the music, and used their technical command and tonal variety entirely in its service.”


Mr. Wang earned his Doctoral of Musical Arts degree from the University of Maryland College Park. He received his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Peabody Conservatory, where he was a student of Victor Danchenko and winner of the Marbury Violin Competition. Previous teachers have included Elaine Mishkind, Eugene Drucker of the Emerson String Quartet, Ik-Hwan Bae, and the late Mark Ulrich. As a chamber musician, Dr. Wang spent summers at the Yellow Barn Music Festival, La Jolla SummerFest, Taos School of Music, and Castleman Quartet Program.


As a member of the “President’s Own” Marine Chamber Orchestra, SSgt. Wang performs regularly at the White House and other distinguished venues in the Washington, D.C., area. Dr. Wang serves on the music faculty of Howard Community College in Columbia, MD, and previously taught at the Peabody Conservatory, Preparatory Division. He performs regularly with the Gemini Piano Trio and with other area ensembles, including the Eclipse Chamber Orchestra and the Fessenden Ensemble.
