An active chamber musician, Wang is a founding member of Trio Solari, which is on the artist roster of Performance Management International. His solo repertoire ranges from early music to contemporary music. Currently he performs as a concertmaster with the Grammy-nominated early music group Ars Lyrica, and has served in the same capacity at Mexico’s Festival de Musica Barroca de San Miguel Allende.
As an advocate of new music, he was Violinist-in-Residence of the esteemed Guild of Composers in New York City, and now appears regularly with Houston’s award-winning contemporary group Musiqa.
At present, he is making the first-ever complete recording of Johann Jakob Walther’s monumental Hortulus Chelicus from 1688 (4 discs, forthcoming), and he can be heard on recording labels such as Albany Records, Sono Luminus, and others.
