ANDREW WAN



Andrew Wan is equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician, and concertmaster. In 2008, he was named Concertmaster of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, making him one of the youngest leaders of a major symphony. His relationship with the OSM began with performances of Elgar’s Violin Concerto, which were hailed as one of the top two musical moments of 2007 by La Presse.

As soloist, he appeared in the United States, China, New Zealand, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Switzerland, and Canada under conductors such as Jean-Claude Casadesus, Maxim Vengerov, Peter Oundjian, Jacques Lacombe, Vasily Petrenko, James DePreist, Marc Piollet and Michael Stern. In 2012, he closed the OSM inaugural season at Maison symphonique de Montréal with Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto, conducted by Kent Nagano. During the Orchestra South American tour in 2013, he performed as soloist and concertmaster in Ravel’s Tzigane and Rimsky- Korsakov’s Scheherazade. During the 2013-2014 season, he performed the world premiere of a work commissioned by the OSM: Les mouvements de l’âme, by Serge Arcuri.

Andrew Wan has concertized extensively throughout the world, appearing with artists such as the Juilliard Quartet, the Sejong Soloists, Vadim Repin, Emanuel Ax, Gil Shaham, Marc-André Hamelin, Jörg Widmann, Menahem Pressler and Cho-Liang Lin. He frequently serves as guest concertmaster for several North American orchestras and has appeared as artist and faculty at the St. Prex, Seattle, Edinburgh, Olympic, Agassiz, La Jolla, Morningside Music Bridge, Aspen, and Orford Music Festivals. His discography includes Grammy and Juno award-nominated releases, with James Ehnes and the Seattle Chamber Music Society, the Metropolis Ensemble, and the Opus award-winning New Orford Quartet, of which he is a founding member. Andrew Wan received his Bachelor of Music and Master of Music Degrees from the Juilliard School. In 2008, he was the only violinist to be accepted into the prestigious Artist Diploma Program at Juilliard. He is currently Assistant Professor at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University as well as the Orford Music Festival. In 2007, he was the grand prize winner of the OSM Standard Life Competition.
