The Chinese-born musician herself studied at the institution in Rochester, New York

Winner of both the Paganini and Munich international competitions, Huang herself studied at Eastman, gaining a master’s degree and doctorate from the institution.

‘I am extremely thrilled to return to Eastman as a faculty member. To me, it is the ideal place for musical and artistic development, where performing and academic studies purposefully complement each other,’ said Huang.

In addition to appearing as a soloist with leading orchestras around the world, Huang has played in the Marlboro Music Festival with members of the Beaux Arts Trio and the Juilliard and Guarneri String Quartets. She has made recordings of the Beethoven Violin Concerto on the Dynamic label and Baroque Violin Favourites on Naxos.
