Sheng-Tsung Wang, violin
By the age of thirteen, violinist Sheng-Tsung Wang had already given his highly acclaimed solo debut performing with the Bremen Symphony Orchestra of Germany. Of the concert Die Nord Deutsche marveled that he “performed the difficult passages with astonishing understanding, as well as interpreting the lyric qualities with sweetness, bravura, and inspired tone.”
Wang presented his Carnegie Hall debut in 1999 with three evenings of solo and chamber performances under the auspices of the La Gesse Foundation. A recent sold-out 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.”
Sheng-Tsung Wang earned his Doctoral of Musical Arts (D.M.A.) degree from the University of Maryland College Park. Dr. Wang received his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Peabody Conservatory, where he was a student of Victor Danchenko. Previous teachers have included Elaine Mishkind, Eugene Drucker of the Emerson String Quartet, Mark Ulrich, and Ik-Hwan Bae.
In addition to current and past faculty positions at University of Maryland College Park, Peabody Institute Preparatory Division, Howard Community College, and the Levine School of Music, Dr. Wang has taught privately for over 20 years, with current and former students occupying principal positions in school, county G/T, All State, All Eastern, and All National orchestras.
As the Associate Concertmaster of the prestigious “President’s Own” Marine Chamber Orchestra, GySgt. Wang performs regularly at the White House, as well as at highly distinguished venues in the Washington, D.C. area.
