Director of Keyboard Studies, Supplementary Piano
Pianist Yu Xi Wang made her Carnegie Hall debut in 2002 as the winner of the Artist International Competition, and subsequently released her debut CD in China. She has performed in New York’s Alice Tully Hall, Jay Sharp Theatre of Lincoln Center, Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall, Rock Hall Auditorium at Temple University, Zoellner Arts Center at Lehigh University, and Gore Recital Hall at University of Delaware. Her interest in performing in unconventional venues has led to her appearances in concert series held in churches, libraries, schools, and patrons’ homes.
A native of Beijing, Dr. Wang began playing the piano at the age of three and later studied at the Central Conservatory of Music. After moving to the United States, she studied at the Juilliard School with Herbert Stessin, Jerome Lowenthal, and Julian Martin, obtaining her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in piano performance. She has served on the faculty of the Juilliard School, the Music Institute of Chicago, Settlement Music School, and Saint Joseph’s University. She joined the Curtis faculty in 2013.
