Violinist Yi-Wen Jiang was born into a musical family in Beijing where both parents were professional musicians – his father a concertmaster for over 35 years and his mother a soprano soloist. After hearing Beethoven's violin concerto at the age of three, Jiang understood his life’s path: to become a professional violinist. He made his concerto debut at the age of 17 in Beijing and studied at the Central Conservatory of Music, before enrolling at the St. Louis Conservatory in 1985 to study with Taras Gabora and Michael Tree. Later he studied at Rugers University with Arnold Steinhardt. In 1994 Jiang joined the Shanghai Quartet, and over the next 26 years performed more than 3000 concerts in 37 countries.
Jiang is Artist-in-Residence at the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University and a faculty member at The Bard College Conservatory of Music.
Frank Corliss is the director of the Bard College Conservatory of Music. For many years he was a staff pianist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and the director of music at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts. He frequently performed on the Boston Symphony Prelude Concert series and throughout the United States as a chamber musician and collaborative pianist. A graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, he received his MM from SUNY at Stony Brook, where he studied with Gilbert Kalish. .
Concert free and open to vaccinated members of the public.
