2017 Shean Strings Competition Winner Alice Lee, Vioion.

Teresa Wang began her musical journey when she started playing violin at the tender age of five. At age 11, she was admitted to the prestigious Young Artists Performance Academy, the pre-college program at The Glenn Gould School, where she studied with Marie Bérard from 2007 to 2014. The comprehensive training she received there made her the versatile musician she is today, enjoying performing in solo, chamber, and orchestral settings.

Ms. Wang has been the Concertmaster of the Academy Chamber Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra, McGill Symphony Orchestra, and National Youth Orchestra of Canada. She has performed as a soloist with the Academy Chamber Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra after winning their respective concerto competitions. She has also received top prizes from the Canadian Music Competition and Kiwanis Music Festival.

As an avid chamber musician, Ms. Wang has collaborated with artists such as Martin Beaver, Stéphane Lemelin, Douglas McNabney, John Novacek, Eric Nowlin, and Scott St. John. After winning McGill’s 2017/18 Chamber Music Competition, she was able to pursue residencies with the Z4 Quartet at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, and the Lunenburg Academy in Nova Scotia. She has appeared as a fellow at the Toronto Summer Music Festival, Manchester Music Festival, and National Youth Orchestra of Canada, and was recently named the winner of Jeunesses Musicales Canada’s 2018 Peter Mendell Award. After completing her Bachelor of Music at McGill’s Schulich School of Music with Outstanding Achievement in Violin, Ms. Wang decided to continue her studies at McGill and is currently pursuing a Master of Music on a Graduate Excellence Award, studying with Axel Strauss.
