Professional Violinist Calvin Tsang was featured as a soloist on Charlotte's (NC) classical radio station W-DAV in "Mainstreet Sessions", performing Sarasate's virtuosic show-piece Zigeunerweisen (sample under "Repertoire"). The former student of renowned pedagogue Almita Vamos has performed with world-class US orchestras, including San Diego Symphony, Charlotte Symphony, Virginia Symphony & Des Moines Metro Opera, & had the honor of performing in concert halls with classical music superstars JOSHUA BELL, Josefowicz, & LANG-LANG as well as under famous conductors (eg. Barenboim, Jahja Ling, & Hans Graf). Starting violin at age 8, he quickly became a rising star, being interviewed by Austin's TV station only 2 years later. In his formative years, he garnered many awards, such as performing as concertmasters of his local schools, region orchestras and most notably, Texas' All-State Orchestra only as a high school freshman. Born in Philippines, he hails from Austin & Chicago, where he completed Bachelor's & Master's degrees in Violin Performance (Northwestern University). In his leisure, he is a weather & AGT fan.  He dreams one day of being a talent show panel judge :)

Calvin is a CFM/AFM (Canadian Federation of Musicians) union musician, has been Associate Concertmaster with Orchestra London, & has performed with London Symphonia, Niagara Symphony, Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, Windsor Symphony, Canada Sinfonietta, etc.
