Recipient of a prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2017 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists, Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang is quickly gaining attention for his eloquent music making, distinctive sound, and effortless virtuosity. The 2017-18 season sees his debuts at the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg at the invitation of Valery Gergiev and with the Berliner Symphoniker at the Berlin Philharmonie, as well as engagements with the North Carolina Symphony, New Mexico Philharmonic, Knoxville Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic, and Taipei Symphony (both in Taiwan and on a US tour). He also embarks on a recital tour through La Jolla, Chicago, Toronto, Palm Desert, Taiwan (three-city tour), and New York that culminates at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. He continues his association with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center for three separate tours in the US, Europe, and Asia, and returns to Camerata Pacifica as a principal artist. His first solo CD, a collection of favorite encores, is on the CHIMEI label. Mr. Huang, who earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School, won the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. He plays the Guarneri del Gesù Cremona 1742 ex-Wieniawski violin, on loan through the Stradivari Society, and is a member of Chamber Music Society Two.
