First generation American Chinese, Theresa Wong is a composer, cellist, and vocalist active at the intersection of music, experimentation, improvisation, and the synergy of multiple disciplines. Her exciting and innovative works include She Dances Naked Under Palm Trees, commissioned by pianist Sarah Cahill for The Future Is Female project, As We Breathe, an installed song commissioned by Long Beach Opera for the 2020 Songbook, and The Unlearning (Tzadik), twenty-one songs inspired by Goya's Disasters of War etchings which premiered as an intermedia performance at Roulette in Brooklyn in 2013. Harbors, her collaboration with Long String Instrument inventor Ellen Fullman, was released on room40 to critical acclaim and chosen as one of Wire’s top 50 releases of 2020. In 2022, Wong was the inaugural Sound/scapes artist at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, creating three site-specific performances inspired by artworks in the museum's collection. Wong has shared her work internationally at venues including Fondation Cartier, Paris; Cafe Oto, London; Fabbrica Europa, Florence; Sydney Festival; The Lab, San Francisco; and The Stone in New York City. Her latest release, Practicing Sands, is an album of solo works for cello and voice.
