I-Jung Huang

About me

Currently based in New York, Taiwanese violinist I-Jung Huang has performed widely across Europe, the United States, China and Taiwan. She believes music is a powerful, transcendent bridge to communicate with audiences. 


Taiwanese violinist I-Jung Huang is the top prizewinner of 2017 Ima Hogg Concerto Competition and 2016 Hudson Valley String Competition; the Laureate of the 2015 Michael Hill International Violin Competition; the top prizewinner of TSO “The Young talent” competition; the Academy of Taiwan Strings Competition in Taiwan, and was the youngest musician selected at the Young Artist Taiwan Bank in 2011. She appeared as a soloist with Houston Symphony Orchestra, Hudson Valley Philharmonic; Taiwan Philharmonic, and Taipei Symphony Orchestra.

During the school year of 2013-2014, she joined the CPP (Community Partnership Program) at the New England Conservatory with the Gioviale Quartet. She is actively organizing theme-based music projects in the United States, which bring out her creativity and passion about sharing music. Her project "TwoBows" has received partial funding through Juilliard Project Grant, which is a three-city house concert tour programmed with unique chamber music repertoire, focusing on music that is unknown or underplayed.

She has participated in several summer festivals and has received full scholarships, including the Ravinia Festival, the Four Seasons Winter Workshop, Kneisel Hall, and Taos School of Music, where she worked intensively with the members from the Guarneri Quartet, Borromeo Quartet, Shanghai Quartet, and Brentano Quartet. She has been invited to play with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players for their 2017-2018 concerts in New York.

A recent graduate of New England Conservatory, I-Jung is currently pursuing her master degree at The Juilliard School, where she studies with Donald Weilerstein and Daniel Phillips. Her previous teachers include Miriam Fried and Nanette Chen. In 2016-2018, she is a grant recipient of The Juilliard Career Grant, and has been selected as a Young Artist in “Music Star” in Taiwan, where she will have a solo recital in December 2017. Aside from her musical achievements, I-Jung is a passionate journal writer, a blogger, a photographer, and a painter.
