Named as one of the honorees of Mandarin Leader Magazine in 2018, violinist Pei-Wen Liao is a young artist quickly becoming widely recognized for her highly compelling and deeply passionate performances. A recent first prize winner of 2020 Alexander & Buono International String Competition, Ms. Liao has performed as a soloist with more than twenty orchestras in twelve countries across three continents. By thirteen, Ms. Liao had already sold-out a recital at Carnegie Weill Hall. She then made her debut in China in 2010, performing as a soloist on a 13-concert tour. Since then, she has been invited back to perform in China for seven consecutive years and has performed in at least 30 cities across China. More recent engagements have included a private solo performance for the President of Honduras and solo performances at the United Nations, Capitol Hill, the Oculus, and Bryant Park.
Ms. Liao has performed as a soloist in countries including Russia, Israel, Canada, Italy, Austria, China, Korea, Japan, Serbia, Thailand, Myanmar, and the United States. She has been featured as a guest soloist in Vienna with The Global Orchestra, at New York’s Alice Tully Hall with the World Civic Orchestra, in Russia with Voronezh State Orchestra and Lieptsk Philharmonic Orchestra, in Israel and Italy with the Jerusalem Academy Orchestra on its tour, at Shanghai Symphony Hall with Shanghai City Symphony Orchestra, and multiple sold-out solo recitals at the Taiwan National Concert Hall.
As an aspiring artist and an advocate for cultural citizenship and interdisciplinary collaborations, Ms. Liao has worked closely with countless indigenous schools in Asia to inspire underserved communities with interactive musical performances. A firm believer in music taking an active leadership role in its potential to effect changes in the world, she has recorded a CD in 2019 that uniquely brings together the sounds of Taiwanese folk music with traditional western instruments, all proceeds of CD go directly to charities that support indigenous children.
Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Ms. Liao is currently studying at the Yale School of Music with Hyo Kang. She is a graduate of The Juilliard School under the tutelage of Joel Smirnoff. Her previous teachers include Cho-Liang Lin, Lara Lev, Daniel Phillips, and Stephen Clapp. Ms. Liao plays a 1830 Calot violin kindly loaned from the Chi-Mei Foundation of Taiwan.
