REMARKABLE PRESENCE. TECHNICAL BRILLIANCE.

Hanzhi Wang does not play polka or zydeco. Her astonishing ability to reinterpret the classical canon on the button accordion and command of the stage have earned her international recognition. She is the first accordionist to join the roster of Young Concert Artists in its 57-year history of discovering extraordinary musicians.

Born in 1990, she is considered one of the brightest stars of the new generation of classical accordionists. Praised for her engaging stage presence and performances that are technically and musically brilliant (we highly recommend looking her up on YouTube), Wang’s concert career has already taken her around the globe with performances in Europe and Asia. For the 2018|2019 season, she will make her debut in the Young Concert Artists Series in Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, before making her way to Gainesville.
