RNCM’s International Artist Diploma represents the pinnacle of achievement in performance at the conservatoire and welcomes a small number of artists each year who are on the cusp of international careers.
Each artist carefully curates their own programme of music to showcase their talent and artistic identity.
As a concert performer, Wenhan is working on expanding music for the viola, transcribing music from other instruments and working closely with living composers. He has been awarded the first prize in Theodore Holland Viola Competition and the third prize at the Oskar Nedbal Competition. He has been invited to play in festivals all over the world, including Pacific Music Festival, Encuentro Santander, Lucerne Festival. He has been a viola section leader for the Ulster Orchestra, and also has appeared as a guest principal for Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Welsh National Opera and Sinfonia Viva.
