The classical accordion is rapidly growing as a concert instrument, thrilling audiences in new ways. Up and coming artist, Hanzhi Wang, is the accordion’s perfect ambassador. Praised for her engaging stage presence and performances that are technically and musically brilliant, her career has already taken her around the globe with performances in Europe and Asia.
As First Prize winner of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York, she is now introducing US audiences to the accordion with recitals throughout the country, including debuts in New York at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall and in Washington, DC at the Kennedy Center. Other distinctions include first prizes in several music competitions around the world.
