A Musical Journey

IMG_5062.jpg

Dr. Sung Ho Yang has appeared in concert halls around the world, including solo recitals in Italy, Spain, Slovakia, Japan, South Korea, and the United States. He won second prize in the International Competition of Piano Performance Florestano Rossomandi and has been awarded semifinalista medalla at the Maria Canals International Music Competition. In April of 2018, he performed a solo recital in JCC Thurnauer School of Music in Bergen County as a guest artist. In June of 2014, The Segye Times sponsored his solo recital appearance in Kumho Arts Hall in Seoul. Dr. Yang has performed as a concerto soloist with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra as a third prize winner in the Johann Nepomuk Hummel International Piano Competition,  the Classical Notes Philharmonic, and Park Avenue Chamber Orchestra.

Dr. Yang graduated with a Bachelor of Music, Master of Music, and Graduate Diploma in piano performance from the New England Conservatory of Music studying under Wha Kyung Byun. He received Doctor of Musical Arts in piano performance (minoring in music theory) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, advised by Christopher Taylor, Brian Hyer, and Leslie Blasius. The Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation, an organization that awards scholarships to assist exceptional students in the pursuit of higher education, sponsored his studies at the University of Wisconsin.

Dr. Yang's wide range of repertoires includes chamber ensemble for brass, woodwind, and string. He works as a collaborative pianist with diverse artists, such as a soprano, Julie JungHwa Park, Sodam Jeon; a cellist, Karen Poleshuck; a violinist, Yong Tae Kim; and a flutist, Katharine Sun Cho. Since February 2016, he worked at the Thurnauer School of Music as a collaborative pianist.

His graduate education at the University of Wisconsin, developed his capabilities as a researcher that assists him in performances of Twentieth-century music. His thesis is entitled "Pierre Boulez's Technique of Alternating Dissonances in his Second Piano Sonata, the Lent," The project analyzes the work in both technical and nontechnical terms, an undertaking that many scholars have avoided for fear of being too controversial and complex. By applying Allen Forte's musical set theory and ideas from Fred Everett Maus’ Music As Drama to performance, Dr. Yang will help performers and listeners understand the unfamiliarities of this pinnacle work from the twentieth century. Dr. Yang is a strong advocate of Twentieth-century music. During his training, he has demonstrated an interest in music by performing the works of Stockhausen, Messiaen, Boulez, Beat Furrer and Frederic Rzewski.

Dr. Yang pursues a variety of other interests, including: cycling (he was a member of a University of Wisconsin Cycling Team and raced with them in criterium); music theory; poetry; and aviation. He is currently residing in Norwood, New Jersey with a daughter and a wife.
