Shuxiang Yang, violin
Well-loved for his powerful and charismatic musical presence, Singaporean violinist Shuxiang Yang sustains an impressive portfolio career spanning performance, academia, education, and arts management.
A passionate soloist and chamber musician, Yang has concertised in Asia, North America, Europe, and Australasia—at venues ranging from Singapore’s Esplanade and Victoria concert halls to the iconic Museo del Violino in Cremona. Solo appearances include concerti with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Singapore National Youth Orchestra, NUS Chinese Orchestra, and The Chamber Players. He has also been featured in prominent festivals such as the Singapore International Festival of Arts, Macao Arts Festival, and Perlman Music Program. In 2012, Yang was specially praised for his memorable performance at the President’s Young Performers concert:
“[Yang] gave arguably the finest solo performance in the history of the President’s concert series. … Seldom has there been a performance of such intensity, … one that grabbed the listener by the lapels and never let go.”
— Straits Times
Beyond the Western canon, Yang is fascinated by the seemingly endless possibilities of the avant-garde. Explorations along this frontier include a new genre-bending adventure with Tangent Moves, and collaborations with Singaporean composers Koh Cheng Jin, Phoon Yu, and Jonathan Shin.
Yang’s unique musical voice took shape under the guidance of esteemed professors Donald Weilerstein, Qian Zhou, Almita Vamos, Roland Vamos, and Victor Danchenko. Also influential were his beloved pre-college teachers Sylvia Khoo and Lynette Lim, who kindled his ardent love for music and inspired him to pursue his dreams.
Yang was a recipient of the prestigious Loke Cheng-Kim Foundation Scholarship, and a prizewinner at the Hong Kong International Violin Competition, Cremona International Competition for Strings, and Atlantic Symphony Concerto Competition. He holds degrees in music from the New England Conservatory (M.M.), Yong Siew Toh Conservatory (G.D.), Northwestern University (B.M.), and is currently completing his Doctor of Musical Arts candidacy at NEC.
In addition to performing, Yang teaches violin and chamber music at Singapore’s national arts high school: School of the Arts. He has previously served as teaching assistant to Prof. Donald Weilerstein, and taught at the Boston Music Institute and Collaborative Piano Camp Thailand. Yang concurrently manages the Singapore International Violin Competition.
