IUP piano faculty member Henry Wong Doe traveled to Shenyang, China, on November 20, 2016, to perform and teach at Shenyang Conservatory of Music.
Wong Doe's visit included performing a solo recital at the Conservatory on November 21, as well as teaching private lessons and giving masterclasses to both college and pre-college students. Shenyang Conservatory is one of the top music conservatories of China, following the Central Conservatory (Beijing) and Shanghai Conservatory in the northeast region of the country. Graduates of Shenyang Conservatory have gone on to complete master's and doctoral programs at Juilliard, Eastman, and other top U.S. music schools.
Wong Doe's visit was at the invitation of Professor Fang Zhang, piano professor at Shenyang Conservatory of Music. Prof. Zhang has sent three graduates of the conservatory to IUP; two of them (Jiayin Sun and Xiang Jin) are current MA students and graduate assistants in piano.
