Yaoyue Huang currently studies in the studio of pianist Soyeon Kate Lee at the College-Conservatory of Music. Huang focuses on exploring new music and lesser performed modern works for solo piano and works for ensemble. Huang works with composer peers in premiering their works, in the United States and abroad. Huang has been invited to the 14th International piano competition of Orléans 2020, where she will premiere a newly composed work which she commissioned for the André Chevillion—Yvone Bonnaud composition prize. This competition focuses solely on contemporary music and celebrates lesser known works, inviting young composers and 31 performers from around the world to France in October 2020.
Huang is a co-artistic director with Scott Sherman of the “Music X Habitat X Art” project— an experimental contemporary art and classical performance group based in Shanghai, Guangzhou, and the United States. Their first major live performance project, Audible Light, is a classical performance with an immersive installation of photography, projected images, and animations. “Music X Habitat X Art” was founded on the idea of unifying performers, art, music, and audiences through shared experience and visual-auditory sensations. Additionally, “Music X Habitat X Art” would like to bring awareness to environmental and wildlife conservation, hopefully working with foundations in the future. In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, “Music X Habitat X Art” has launched a separate initiative to bring their concept to an online art space— working with photography, animation, and video art alongside recordings of their performances.
Huang was invited as a guest artist in the Wave Elements Global Music Festival in Portland Oregon, Music For All Seasons Cincinnati and Classical Revolution Cincinnati. She has recently participated in the Gilmore Artists Festival, Bowdoin International Music Festival, The Tel-Hai International Piano Masterclasses in Israel, and the Gijón International Piano Festival in Spain and the Francis@4 Series in Cincinnati. Huang has performed at the Cincinnati Art Museum, The Farnsworth Art Museum, Shenzhen Poly Theatre, Shenzhen Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Center, Xinghai Concert Hall, Haojiang Theatre, Shantou University Southern China, Ongaku-No-Tomo Hall in Tokyo, Nihon University at the Ekoda Campus Tokyo, Wharton Center for the Performing Arts, White Rock Theatre in the UK. Huang has performed with the Lima Symphony Orchestra, College-Conservatory of Music Philharmonia Orchestra, and the Michigan State University Symphony Orchestra.
