Posted on: January 22, 2010

The Houston Symphony has announced the appointment of FRANK HUANG as concertmaster, effective with the 2010-11 season. In assuming the new post he will step down as professor of violin and chamber music at the Eastman School of Music and first violinist in the Ying Quartet. A native of China, Huang came to the U.S. with his family at the age of seven and grew up in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land, Texas. He began performing as an orchestral soloist at the age of nine, and two years later appeared with the Houston Symphony in a nationally broadcast performance. Huang earned his bachelor’s degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2002 and furthered his studies with Robert Mann at The Juilliard School.
