ON THIS DAY | Happy Birthday, VC Artist Charles Yang!

Charles was described by The Boston Globe as "a classical violinist with the charisma of a rock star"

 

Today is violinist and vocalist, VC Artist Charles Yang’s 33rd birthday!

A graduate of The Juilliard School, where he studied with Glenn Dicterow, and former student of Kurt Sassmanshaus, Paul Kantor, and Brian Lewis in his earlier years, Charles is a recent recipient of the esteemed "Leonard Bernstein Award."

As a genre-bending violinist, Charles performs in the crossover string trio Time for Three, as well as in a duo with pianist Peter Dugan.

Charles' elaborate career has seen him perform at the Aspen Music Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Ravinia Festival, Crested Butte Music Festival — as well as at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center’s Metropolitan Opera House, David H. Koch Theater, etc.

Highlights of his recent seasons include his solo debut with conductor Marin Alsop and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and his debut with pianist Peter Dugan as part of The Violin Channel's Vanguard Concerts opening season.
