Praised for her engaging stage presence and performances that are technically and musically brilliant, Hanzhi Wang is the first accordionist to join the roster of Young Concert Artists in its 57-year history of discovering extraordinary musicians. A First Prize Winner of the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, she was awarded numerous special prizes, including the Krannert Center performance prize. To inspire the next generation of young accordionists, Ms. Wang has lectured and given masterclasses at the Manhattan School of Music, the International Summer Campus of the Royal Danish Academy of Music, the Tianjin Music Conservatory, and Beijing’s Capital Normal University. She has served on the jury for the Accordion Competition of Rome, the International Accordion Festival in AlcobacÌ§a, Portugal, and the International Castelfidardo Accordion Music Competition in Italy. Ms. Wang is the featured artist on Naxos’ first-ever solo accordion CD, In the Path of H.C. Andersen.
