About Michael Yeung


Winner of the 2023 Susan Wadsworth Young Concert Artist International Auditions, Michael Yeung is a unique percussion artist equally comfortable as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral performer, with his career taking him across the United States, Europe, and Asia. His solo recitals include a wide repertoire of music from the Baroque to the 21st century. As a chamber musician, he has appeared with the internationally acclaimed Percussion Collective in the world-premiere of Argentinian composer Alejandro Viñao’s Poems and Prayers, performing alongside many of today’s most important young percussionists. His orchestral experience has included playing timpani with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, in the 33rd Castell de Peralada Festival in Barcelona, Spain.

Michael is completing his studies with world-renowned percussion pedagogue Robert van Sice in the Yale School of Music. He is the second percussionist ever to be admitted to the school’s prestigious Artist Diploma programme, where each year a singular student is chosen across all instrumental disciplines to pursue the highest-level training for emerging soloists. A great believer in passing on knowledge, each summer Michael returns to his native Hong Kong to teach young students and curate multi-media percussion productions. This summer, Michael also curated a series of concerts sponsored by TEDx in Shenzhen, the highlight of which was the Emmy Award-winning composer Garth Neustadter’s percussion sextet Seaborne, an audio-visual celebration of our endangered oceans.
