CLARINETIST & COMPOSER
"Extraordinary virtuosity” -CHIMI Arts Award
"Yu-Ting is an absolutely wonderful artist...I particularly loved her sublime playing in the slow movement, where her radiant tone and long phrases were so evident. And as for the last movement — The tempi and dynamism of the performance had me clinging to the edge of my seat." -Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Corigliano
Hailed for her “extraordinary virtuosity” (CHIMI Arts Award), as well as for her “sublime playing” and “radiant tone” ( Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Corigliano), Taiwanese clarinetist Dr. Yu-Ting Cheng has revealed her uncommon musical versatility and earned recognition as a solo artist by winning numerous top prizes in her younger career, including the national music competition Hsing-Tien Kong Young Artist Award, the 2019 Stony Brook Concerto Competition, the 32nd CHIMEI Arts Award, the 5th North International Music Competition, the American Prize National Competitions in Instrumental Performance and the Ernst Bacon Award of American Music. Additionally, Yu-Ting is the recipient of the 2015 Valeri Canady Foundation Scholarship in clarinet performance, 2017 Outstanding Alumni Award of Taiwan Chapter Society of Peabody Conservatory Alumni. Awarded fellowships by the highly reputable Norfolk New Music Workshop (2019) and LUCERNE Festival Academy (2020), Yu-Ting’s exceptional and remarkable performance on contemporary music is unparalleled in the field of her work.
She is also the artist-in-residence of “Stars of Tiding” O-Bank Education Foundation, and will be giving her solo recital in Taiwan this August.
