Seattle Classic Guitar Society - Xuefei Yang

Xuefei Yang is acclaimed as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists. Hailed as a musical pioneer – her fascinating journey began after the Cultural Revolution, a period where Western musical instruments and music were banned. Xuefei was the first-ever guitarist in China to enter a music school, and became the first internationally recognized Chinese guitarist on the world stage. Xuefei Yang has won numerous prizes in international music competitions, including the Stotsenberg International Classical Guitar Competition and the San Francisco International Guitar Competition. Xuefei is committed to commissioning new works and making her own arrangements, with a particular interest in adding Chinese music and chamber music.
