Xin Wang was born in Yunnan, a Southwestern province of China. She arrived alone in Canada at the age of 18 to study singing. Her path took her from Winnipeg to Toronto where she settled and built her home of two steadfast parents, three beautifully loud children and a charismatic husband with many saxophones. 

Xin is most interested in the mechanism of the singing body and most stimulated by the learning of intricate music. This has led her to the world of contemporary repertoire.  Solving complex musical puzzles has always given Xin solace amidst life. It pushes her towards her threshold while builds her up from within, a similar experience as motherhood.
