Over his illustrious career and with his impressive range, he has won high acclaim and numerous awards performing across the United States, Europe and Asia. As both a soloist and chamber musician, he maintains a rigorous performance schedule with some 60 concerts each year.

Both albums are available on Apple iTunes and in 14,000 retail stores worldwide. Dr Huang’s third solo album is due for release this year.

At the age of eight, Dr Huang gave his first public performance in his hometown of Taipei in Taiwan, and debuted in the United States at the age of sixteen at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall in New York City.
