Since her debut recital at the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing at the age of 13, Wang has performed on stages in the US, Germany and Poland, among other countries, and collaborated with esteemed orchestras worldwide.

She enrolled at Curtis in 2012, where she obtained a bachelor's degree under pianists Meng-Chieh Liu and Eleanor Sokoloff, and continued onto undertake her studies for the master's degree last year at the New England Conservatory of Music, under the guidance of professor Dang Thai Son.

Last year, she was once again thrust into the public consciousness when she won first prize and the Nelson Freire Prize for the best performer of a piece by Chopin at the 2022 edition of the Ferrol International Piano Competition in Spain.

"For the foreseeable future, I will continue my graduate studies in Boston, and I plan on traveling and performing as much as I can," Wang says.
