More about Wendy Young

Harpsichordist Wendy Young has performed at many of America’s major concert halls, at numerous international festivals, and with many early music ensembles, as well as dance and theatre groups, and is recognized as both a soloist and collaborative continuo player. Always striving to stretch the limits of the harpsichord, her playing can also be heard on a recording with the the Art Farmer Trio playing jazz versions of the Bach Brandenburg Concerti, and numerous commercials and movie soundtracks, including the soundtrack for the Warner Bros. movie “Interview with the Vampire.”

In addition to being the director of Early Music Princeton, she is the Music Coordinator for the Chigiana Global Academy Programs,  a 6-week summer chamber music program in Siena, Italy, for undergraduate students. 

Wendy has been studying the healing effects of sound, music, and vibration for over 30 years, and co-directed the Sound and Music Institute, a 9-month program in therapeutic sound and music at the New York Open Center. She has created a practitioner training in therapeutic sound, and is the director of the Princeton Sound School, specializing in sound meditation.
