About:  Pianist Wayne Weng, Violinist Jae-Won Bang and Jonathan Lo


Pianist Wayne Weng’s playing has been described as “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 win the first prize at the 2013 Iowa International Piano Competition.  He was also a prizewinner at the Washington International Competition for Piano, where his performance in the final round “raised the excitement level of the afternoon several notches.” (The Washington Post). 

As a soloist as well as a collaborator, Wayne Weng has performed in Canada, the United States, England, Italy, France, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Serbia, Egypt, Hong Kong and Taiwan.  Venues include the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Chicago Cultural Center, Bösendorfer Hall at the Mozarthaus in Vienna, St. Peter’s Basilica, Sala dei Notari and Teatro Pavone in Perugia, the Palace of Fontainebleau, the Fitzwilliam Museum at the Cambridge University, Bargemusic in New York, the National Music Museum in South Dakota, the 92nd St. Y in New York, Steinway Hall in New York, the Brooklyn Public Library, the 100 Club in London, the Brahms Museum in Mürzzuschlag, the Polish Consulate in New York, the Bulgarian Consulate in New York, Cairo Opera House, Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office in New York, the Chan Centre in Vancouver, the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver, and the British Columbia Governor House.  

He has performed concerti with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Sioux City Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, Cascade Symphony Orchestra, Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra, West Coast Symphony, Philharmonic Orchestra of University of Alicante, Victoria Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Seattle, and the Avanti Orchestra. 

Violinist Jae-Won Bang received her Bachelor of Music and Master of Music in Violin Performance from the Colburn School and Yale School of Music respectively, and Master of Music in Historical Performance from the Juilliard School. In 2012, she was featured on the NEXT Young Artist series on CBC Radio Two with pianist Ryo Yanagitani, as the first artist to be heard on both baroque and modern violins. Jae-Won has collaborated with Clive Greensmith, Gil Kalish, Ronald Leonard, Rachel Podger, Arnold Steinhardt, and has performed in Weill Hall and Stern Auditorium at Carnegie, David Geffen Hall, Kennedy Centre, Alice Tully Hall, the Greene Space at WQXR, and le poisson rouge. She has also appeared as a Young Artist with Da Camera Houston for the 2015/2016 season. Her teachers include Gerald Stanick, Robert Lipsett, Ani Kavafian, Laurie Smukler, and Cho-Liang Lin on violin and Robert Mealy, Cynthia Roberts and Monica Huggett on baroque violin.


Canadian cellist Jonathan Lo has performed in venues such as Alice Tully Hall and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre at the Canadian Opera Company, Koerner Hall at the Royal Conservatory of Music, and the Paleis Het Loo. He has appeared as soloist with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Northwest, and the Burnaby Symphony. His chamber music collaborators have included Geoff Nuttall, Robert Levin, Louis Schwizgebel, and the late Lynn Harrell; additionally he has worked closely with composers such as Oliver Knussen, Shulamit Ran, and Osvaldo Golijov. From 2013 to 2020, he was the founding cellist of the Rolston String Quartet, winners of the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Cleveland Quartet Award.
