Wushan Wang – cello


Beijing-born cellist Wushan Wang graduated from the Idyllwild Arts Academy in 2011, and since then has been a very active performer in both China and the United States. Shortly after his graduation from Idyllwild, Wushan was accepted to the University of Cincinnati College’s Conservatory of Music with the CCM honor scholarship, where he studied with Professor Yehuda Hanani, a student of cello legend Pablo Casals.

As a chamber musician, Wushan has performed actively at a number of stages and music halls, such as the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Stephens Hall in San Diego, the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing, and the Beijing Concert Hall. In recent years, Wushan had master classes with Lynn Harrell, Paul Kats, Alan Harris, John Walz, Mark Kosower, Wolfram Koessi, and Andrew Shulman.

In 2014, Wushan collaborated with the Beijing Chinese Symphony Orchestra as a winner of their concerto competition. During the 2015-2016 season he performed as an honorable guest artist to perform for the High Peaks Music Festival in New York. Afterwards, Wushan and longtime recital partner Hsieh Chung-his performed at the prestigious opening ceremony for the High Peaks International String Academy. In 2018, Wushan was invited by the Great Wall Quartet to participate in the SDSU Music Festival, and in the same year was hired as a soloist by the Beijing Chinese Orchestra.

Wushan is currently working towards his Artist Diploma with Professor Yao Zhao at San Diego State University.
