Huang has given recitals and collaborated with internationally renowned artists in performances throughout the U.S. and overseas. She will perform music by W.A. Mozart, Max Bruch and JMU faculty pianist, Jason Haney.

Wanchi Huang began violin lessons with her mother in her native country Taiwan at the age of six. Before the age of 13, she had won numerous Taiwan-wide competitions in both violin and piano including the Taiwan National Violin Competition. At 13, she came to the U.S. to study with Daniel Heifetz and Shirley Givens at the Peabody Conservatory Preparatory Division, and attend the Baltimore School for the Arts. At 15, she made her solo debut with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Catherine Comet.

Huang received her Bachelor from the Curtis Institute of Music, her Masters from The Julliard School, and her Doctor of Music from the Indiana University School of Music. She taught at Tunghai University in Taichung, Taiwan before coming to JMU in 1998. Wanchi recently contracted with Centaur Records to record all six of Eugene Ysa˙e’s Violin Sonatas.
