‘Everything she touches, turns to gold’, Belgian newspaper De morgen headlined when in May 2019 Sylvia Huang reached the final round of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. The then twenty-five-year-old violinist was the only Belgian national to take part in the prestigious competition, and the first Belgian finalist in ten years. Her interpretations of Dvořák’s Violin Concerto in A minor and the obligatory work, Fidl by Finnish composer Kimmo Hakola - both  performed with the Belgian National Orchestra – won her the audience prize.

Sylvia Huang had her first violin lessons with her father and continued her studies at the Académie des Arts de la Ville de Bruxelles. She won first prize at the Belfius Classics National Musical Competition in 2004 and the Lions European Musical Competition. Huang gained orchestral experience in the European Union Youth Orchestra, the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.

She joined the second violin section of the Belgian National Orchestra in September 2012 and was promoted to the position of co-principal violinist a year and a half later. She has also performed extensively as a chamber player and on solo recitals. Huang joined the first violin section of the Concertgebouworkest in August 2014. She is also a founding member of the GoYa Quartet, with her colleagues from the orchestra Mirelys Morgan-Verdecia, Martina Forni and Honorine Schaeffer. Since the 2019-20 season she is working on her solo career.
