visiting artist-in-residence, violin
Praised by the Göttingen Tageblatt for "Sein satter, seine Virtuosität, seine straffe, zielstrebige Gestaltung (his sound, virtuosity and taut, purposeful interpretations), Lewis Wong enjoys a tripartite career as soloist, ensemblist, and educator.
As soloist, he appears regularly with orchestras of different countries. Recent invitations have come internationally from the Orchester Göttinger Musikfreunde, Moldova Symphony, Taipei Chamber Orchestra, and domestically from orchestras in California, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, and Texas. He has given recitals in venues such as New York's Carnegie Recital Hall, the Scots Kirk Paris, Leipzig's Mendelssohn-Haus, Prague's Bertramka W.A. Mozart Museum, and Amsterdam's Galerie Wilhelmina.
Also, Lewis Wong takes great joy in making music with others. Presently, he is Concertmaster of the Hudson Symphony Orchestra, and leader of the Manhattan Chamber Soloists, a flexible chamber ensemble whose tours in the U.S. and abroad have lead to acclaim. Before his tenure with these ensembles, he was a violinist in the Trio d'Exuberance, a violin-clarinet-piano group that served as Artists-in-Residence at Trocaire College in Buffalo, NY and a fan favorite to the audiences of the East Coast.
A dedicated pedagogue, he has given guest lectures/mastersclasses at institutions, including the Juilliard School, Southeastern University and the Aula des Theodor-Heuss. His students have earned prizes in competitions and places in local orchestras. Blessed with a rich educational pedigree, Dr. Wong is committed to handing down the wisdom of his mentors, representatives to the very best of the Auer, Flesch and Galamian traditions.
Dr. Lewis Wong is currently Visiting Artist-in-Residence at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
