Siyao Wang's Bio:

Siyao Wang was originally born in Shenyang, Liaoning Province. In order to pursue higher goals, she went on to study in the United States after graduating from a high school that was affiliated with the Shenyang Conservatory of Music. She successively studied alongside famous pianists,

Guo Ying, Chih-Long Hu, and Esther Park. She first studied for a bachelor's degree from East Tennessee State University having received a full Steinway scholarship, and then followed Boaz Sharon to achieve a master's degree from Boston University College of Music.

 

During her studies in the United States, Siyao's repertoire includes numerous international awards, including placing third in the St. Andrew International Piano Competition in Canada and the Best Performance Award for Romantics, as well as the first prize for the TMTA Piano Chamber Music. Additionally, she was influenced and highly applauded by famous American pianists Mayer Spencer and Benjamin Caton as well as world-class piano master, Leon Fleisher.

Vadym Kholodenko, the gold medal winner of the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, highly praised her and stated: "Siyao Wang is a naturally gifted performer with a magical musical astuteness, prompting a sublime spiritual essence which is precisely expressed through her performance. Her piano resonates with vigorous to light intensity, while her unique sense of femininity further endows her performance with fresh vitality."

In recent years, Siyao has been active as a solo piano player on world stages which include Boston Hunneman Concert Hall, Cary Concert Hall, Tennessee Steinway Concert Hall, Boston University Concert Hall, and the United States Steinway Piano Concert Hall.

At the same time, as a chamber musician, she also cooperated with many world-renowned artists, including American violinist Peter Zazofsky, Russian pianist Pavel Nersessian, American musician and educator Robert Merfeld, American singer Matt Hartgrove, and cellist Cherylonda Fitzgerald.

Siyao Wang has also held performances in cooperation with the Yamaha International Education Center for an extended period of time and taught there as an YMES teacher. In addition, she has also been invited to present lectures at Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) and to hold masterclasses and solo concerts at Prima Academy in Ontario, Canada.

She has always been committed to promoting the exchange and complementation of Chinese and Western music cultures, and promoting the inclusion of excellent Chinese musical compositions into the Western music industry.
