Hsin-Yun Huang, viola

Overview

A native of Taiwan, Hsin-Yun Huang moved to England at age fourteen to study with David Takeno at the Yehudi Menuhin School. Her studies continued at the Curtis Institute with Michael Tree, and subsequently at the Juilliard School, where she earned her master of music degree while studying with Samuel Rhodes. Since becoming the youngest-ever gold medalist in the Lionel Tertis International Competition in 1988, Ms. Huang has firmly established herself among the leading violists of her generation. A member of the Borromeo Quartet from 1994 to 2000, she recently toured with the Orion Quartet and the Bill T. Jones Dance Company (under the auspices of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center) and participated in many prominent chamber music festivals, including Spoleto, Chamber Music Northwest, Marlboro Music, and Prussia Cove. Her collaborative appearances include concerts with Yo-Yo Ma, Jaime Laredo, Joseph Suk, and Menahem Pressler. Ms. Huang currently serves on the faculties of the Juilliard School and the Mannes College of Music.
