“Xiren Wang's fingers dance across the keyboard of the grand piano at the Fogolar Furlan Club with the power and grace of ballet. But there's more than passion and virtuosity in her interpretation of Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata. The aching beauty of her music also hints at Wang's own story, one that is a testament to the unbreakable thread of human empathy, mending hearts together from provincial China, through Windsor, to the slums of Haiti. "I know music can heal," said Wang, after performing at the fundraising dinner for Windsor's Hearts Together for Haiti. "...Music gives them something that can't be taken away. It overcomes the darkness in life ... I know. I've benefited myself from the healing power of music." Xiren Wang is more than a gifted or celebrated musician seeking ways to give back. She plays for the disenfranchised and teaches the world's forsaken children because the willowy beauty with the expressive eyes knows she came perilously close to being counted among them.”
