ABOUT RANDALL GOOSBY
Violinist Randall Mitsuo Goosby has appeared as guest soloist with numerous orchestras throughout the United States since winning First Prize at the Annual Sphinx Concerto Competition in 2010 at age 13. Shortly after winning, Randall was invited to appear as part of the New York Philharmonic’s prestigious Young People’s Concert series at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center. The New York Times raved that he “exerted a masterly level of control and lavished an exquisite tone…his performance won him a deserved standing ovation for its sheer virtuosity” in his Carnegie Hall debut performance of Ysaye Solo Sonata No. 3.
Randall received a full scholarship to The Juilliard School’s Pre-College program and has earned his Bachelor of Music and Master of Music from Juilliard under the tutelage of violinists Itzhak Perlman, Catherine Cho, Laurie Smukler, and Donald Weilerstein. He is now pursuing an Artist Diploma at Juilliard. Randall has been featured on National Public Radio’s “From the Top,” and he has been honored as a Rising Star of the Stradivari Society. In addition to his concerts, Randall shares his love of music through community engagement programs for public schools, children’s hospitals, and music programs across the USA.
ABOUT ZHU WANG
Praised for his “technical mastery and deep sense of lyricism,” pianist Zhu Wang was recently selected as one of three winners of the 2020 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. He has been recognized by world-renowned pianist Fou T’song as an “excellent pianist with a natural sense of harmony and imagination,” whose sensitive and engaging performances exhibit a remarkable depth of musicianship and poise beyond his age.
Zhu has performed in recital and with orchestras across Europe, Asia, and North America, including at prestigious venues such as the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. An active chamber musician and promoter of new music, Zhu premiered composer Timo Andres’s Moving Études in a national tour. A graduate of The Juilliard School, Zhu currently studies at the Curtis Institute of Music under Robert McDonald.
