Huangs to Perform at PCS
Helen and Paul Huang

Lee University’s Presidential Concert series will present Helen Huang, piano, and Paul Huang, violin for a performance on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

Known for immaculate technique and eloquent sensitivity, Helen Huang has enjoyed a multi-faceted career as a soloist and chamber music player. She has performed with the Cleveland Orchestra (Ohio), the National Symphony, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Abroad she has appeared with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Orchestre National de France, the London Philharmonic, and the Israel Philharmonic.

An avid chamber musician, Helen Huang has appeared at the Marlboro Music Festival, La Jolla SummerFest, and at Ravinia’s Steans Institute for Young Artists. In 1994, she received Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award for promising young artists, and in 1995, she became one of the youngest recipients of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.

Helen attended the Manhattan School of Music and then the Juilliard School, where she studied with the Israeli pianist Yoheved Kaplinsky. She currently serves on the Juilliard pre-college faculty.

Paul Huang, also a recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, has performed at festivals worldwide, including his recital debut at the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland, the Aspen Music Festival, Seoul Arts Center, and at the Louvre in Paris. He received the Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists in 2017.

Winner of the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Paul Huang made critically-acclaimed recital debuts in New York at Lincoln Center and in Washington, D.C. at the Kennedy Center. The Washington Post proclaimed Paul as "an artist with the goods for a significant career" following his recital debut at the Kennedy Center.

The Presidential Concert Series will continue with pianist Roman Rabinovich on Thursday, March 19, in Pangle Hall. The Glenn Miller Orchestra, originally scheduled to perform on April 16, has been postponed until Sept. 29.
