Charles Yang, recipient of the 2018 Leonard Bernstein Award has been described by the Boston Globe as one who “plays classical violin with the charisma of a rock star.” He is a member of the genre-defying trio Time for Three. Not confined to classical violin, Yang's improvisational crossover abilities as a violinist, electric violinist, and vocalist have led him to feature in performances with a variety of artists in festivals such as The Aspen Music Festival, The Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, The Ravinia Festival, The Crested Butte Music Festival, The YouTube Music Awards, TED, Caramoor, The EG Conference, Google Zeitgeist, Interlochen as well as onstage at venues such as Carnegie Hall; Lincoln Center, The Wiener Musikverein; Rudolfinum, The Royal Danish Theatre, Le Poisson Rouge, Highline Ballroom, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Forbidden City in Beijing among many others.
Peter Dugan is heard every week across America as the host of National Public Radio’s beloved program From the Top. He has appeared as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician across North America and abroad. In 2020, he joined acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell for At Home With Music, a national PBS broadcast and live album release on Sony Classical. Prizing stylistic versatility as the hallmark of a 21st century musician, Mr. Dugan is equally at home in classical, jazz, and pop idioms, and has collaborated with artists ranging from Jesse Colin Young, to Renee Fleming, to Paquito D'Rivera. Mr. Dugan advocates for a classical music culture that is inclusive and welcoming to all, from a community's concert halls and theaters, to its schools and hospitals. As a founding creator of Operation Superpower, a superhero opera for children, he has traveled to dozens of schools in the greater New York area, performing for students and encouraging them to use their talents – their superpowers – for good. He is head of the Artist in Residence program at pianoSonoma and a founding faculty member of the Resonance and Soundboard Institutes at Honeywell Arts Academy. Mr. Dugan holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from The Juilliard School, where he studied under Matti Raekallio. He resides in New York City and is a Yamaha Artist.
