GRAMMY Award-winning artist and recipient of the 2018 Leonard Bernstein Award, Charles Yang has been described by The Boston Globe as one who “plays classical violin with the charisma of a rock star.” The Juilliard graduate began his violin studies with his mother, Sha Zhu, in Austin, Texas, and has since studied with world-renowned pedagogues Kurt Sassmanshaus, Paul Kantor, Brian Lewis and Glenn Dicterow. He has performed as soloist with orchestras and in concert throughout the United States, Europe, Brazil, Russia, China and Taiwan. On June 9th of 2005, the Mayor of Austin presented Mr. Yang with his own “Charles Yang Day.” In 2016, Mr. Yang joined the multi-genre string-band Time for Three as violinist and lead singer.
