Violinist Sirena Huang is the first prize gold medalist of the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians held in Korea in 2009. More recently, she was the first prize winner and recipient of the audience award of the 2011 Cooper International Competition, as well as the Hahnloser prize winner for violin at the Verbier Music Festival in Switzerland. She was named the first artist-in-residence of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra for 2011-14.

The 19-year-old violinist has begun her second year at The Juilliard School, after completing her first year with a triumphant performance at Alice Tully Hall with the Juilliard Symphony Orchestra and James Gaffigan of Bartok’s Concerto No. 2.

Ms. Huang made her orchestral solo debut with the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra at age nine. Since then, she has performed in 13 countries across three continents and has been featured as soloist with more than 40 orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Staatskapelle Weimar in Germany, Russian Symphony Orchestra, among others.

Ms. Huang was invited to perform during the ceremony in which the Humanitarian Award was presented to President Sarkozy of France. In addition, she received the honor of playing for His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan, Elie Wiesel and 30 other Nobel Prize Laureates at the World Peace Conference held in Petra. In 2007, she was invited by the former Czech Republic President Havel, to play in the opening ceremony of Forum 2000 World Conference in Prague. Ms. Huang currently studies with Juilliard faculty Stephen Clapp and Sylvia Rosenberg.

The Blanche and Ira Rosenblum Foundation sponsors this performance in memory of Marjorie and Dr. Julius Kantor. The National Endowment for the Arts has partially underwritten the 2013 Discovery Concerts.
