VC Artist Angelo Xiang Yu Joins The Shanghai Quartet

As part of the Quartet, Angelo joins the faculties of the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University and the The Tianjin Juilliard School

The Shanghai Quartet announced that VC Artist Angelo Xiang Yu joins the ensemble as second violinist, effective immediately. 

Angelo is the recipient of both a 2019 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2019 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award, and he won First Prize in the 2010 Yehudi Menuhin Competition. 

"Angelo brings a breadth of experience with him that is uniquely tailored to our work. In addition to his exceptional soloist abilities, he is an accomplished chamber musician and passionate educator. Being a devoted teacher was an important trait for us, and he also understands the demands of our international touring schedule. With family in Shanghai, he will quickly and happily adapt to the bicontinental nature of our quartet,” said first violinist and co-founder of the Quartet, Weigang Li.

"Joining this esteemed group of colleagues is a dream come true." said Angelo. "During my youth in Shanghai, I admired the Shanghai Quartet as the prime example of how a string quartet should sound. My younger self would have been amazed that I would someday join as a member."
