Pianist Wayne Weng’s playing has been described as “bold, vibrant, and immensely musical," and as having “delicacy amounting to almost reverence […] through gossamer touch" (Wiltshire Gazette & Herald). His “ability to modulate the piano’s sound […] coupled with his great ear easily gave him an edge” (Sioux City Journal) to capture the first prize at the 2013 Iowa Piano Competition.

As a soloist as well as a chamber musician, Mr. Weng has performed in Canada, the United States, England, Italy, France, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Serbia, Egypt, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. He has performed concerti with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Sioux City Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, West Coast Symphony, Philharmonic Orchestra of the University of Alicante, Victoria Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Seattle, and the Avanti Orchestra. He has also been heard on radio stations such as the WFMT Chicago, WQXR New York, CBC Radio and Seattle King FM.

Mr. Weng is currently pursuing the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center, where he is a fellowship recipient and studies with Ursula Oppens. He has previously studied with Donna Fishwick, Sasha Starcevich, Natalya Antonova, Pavlina Dokovska, Joan Havill and Peter Frankl. He holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music (Bachelor of Music and Performer’s Certificate), Mannes College of Music (Master of Music), Guildhall School of Music and Drama (Masterwith distinction), and Yale University (Artist Diploma).

Mr. Weng is represented by Classics Alive Artists management.
