Oh, the Places They’re Going!

Shanghai Orchestra Academy New York Philharmonic Global Academy 

The first class of instrumentalists in the Shanghai Orchestra Academy (SOA) graduated in July, and all of them have found jobs at important orchestras and opera companies.

The class of 2014 (the year they entered) successes include violinist Jing Wang and violist Yaorong Huang, who have joined the Shanghai Opera House orchestra; bassist Siyuan Qu and bassoonist Min Cheng, who have become members of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra (the latter as associate principal bassoon); and Tianhao Yao, who was appointed principal trumpet of the Hangzhou Philharmonic.

What's more, half of the class that entered in 2015 have already won positions: oboist Difan Yang has joined the Shanghai Opera House orchestra; trumpet player Yuchi Gao joined the Shanghai Symphony, and trombonist Yishan Xie and tuba player Xianguan Mu have joined the Ningbo Symphony Orchestra.

The SOA was established as part of the Shanghai Orchestra Academy and Residency Partnership — a joint endeavor of the Philharmonic, Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, and Shanghai Conservatory of Music, presented by Starr International Foundation — which was established to cultivate the next generation of orchestra musicians, with instruction from Philharmonic musicians and others.

Congratulations, all!
