Yinfei Wang began his piano studies in Shanghai at the age of four. Shortly thereafter, he was awarded top prizes in several national competitions in China. He made his first public appearance at the age of 7 in the Shanghai Concert Hall. At the age of 11, he recorded in the “Shanghai Conservatory of Music: Seventieth Anniversary Gala Album” as the youngest performer with some of the most famous Chinese musicians. Since then, he has performed throughout China, Singapore, Spain, Australia and the United States.

In 2014 Wang was one of eight finalists in the 61st Washington International Piano Competition. In 2015, he was awarded first prize in the 2nd Gershwin International Piano Competition in New York. He made his orchestral debut as soloist in the Chopin f minor Concerto with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Mr. Vladimir Feltsman. In the spring of 2010, Yinfei was chosen to perform the Mozart Concerto in d minor (K.466) with the Manhattan School of Music Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the renowned pianist/conductor Phillipe Entremont.

Mr. Wang has worked with many world renowned pianists in the masterclasses, including Hung-Kuan Chen, Stephen Hough, Lang Lang, Robert Levin, Russell Sherman, Fou T’song, among others.
