Born in Taipei, Taiwan, violist Hung-Wei Huang joined the New York Philharmonic in October 2018. In 2002 Mr. Huang became the youngest-ever principal viola of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, and in 2005 he was appointed principal viola of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. He has performed as a soloist with both orchestras, as well as with the Taiwan Writer’s and Artist’s Association Orchestra. He also previously served as guest principal viola of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, and London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Mr. Huang has performed chamber music at New York venues including Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, and Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall; Boston’s Jordan Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; and at the Marlboro, Kneisel Hall, Santa Fe, Great Mountain, and Seoul Spring festivals. He has collaborated with musicians including Joshua Bell, Kyung-Wha Chung, Myung-Wha Chung, Felix Galimir, Gary Hoffman, Dong-Suk Kang, Lang Lang, Yo-Yo Ma, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Paula Robison, Mitsuko Uchida, and Yuja Wang, as well as members of the Guarneri, Juilliard, and Orion string quartets.

Hung-Wei Huang began music lessons at the age of seven, studying with Lin Chia-Zong, and won the Taiwan National Instrumental Competition in 1993. The following year he was accepted to the Curtis Institute of Music on the Louisa Knapp Curtis Fellowship, serving as principal viola of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra and studying with Michael Tree, Joseph de Pasquale, and Karen Tuttle. He then received the Walter W.
