Chinese pianist Yi-Nuo Wang was selected as First Prize winner of the 2018 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, which is just the latest in a series of impressive first-prize performances, along with the 2017 Wideman International Piano Competition. Born in Beijing, Wang began playing piano at age four and went on to study at both the Music Elementary and Secondary schools at the prestigious Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. An active performer in China, Europe, and the United States, Yi-Nuo recently earned her Performer’s Diploma at Southern Methodist University and now lives in New York while pursuing her undergraduate degree at The Juilliard School. Among the many performance prizes awarded with her victories, she will make her New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall during the 2019-20 season.
Salon-style performances offer a close connection between artists and guests, as audience members sit in six rows of seats on stage with the performer. Light refreshments are served before and after the performance. Balcony tickets (without refreshments) are also available.
