(CALGARY — Oct. 20, 2011) Yuja Wang, Conservatory alumna and rising star in the highly competitive world of classical music, is set to return to Mount Royal Conservatory, as a guest artist for the Wyatt Artist in Residence series.

She returns as a teacher and mentor for current Academy students, will conduct masterclasses (an opportunity to be observed and critiqued by a master), and perform a concert in the Leacock Theatre.
Her repertoire for the evening includes selected works from Alexander Scriabin, Sergie Prokofiev and Frank Liszt.
