Jing Zhang

Second Violin

Violinist Jing Zhang began studying the violin at the age of 4. She entered the Shanghai Conservatory of Music on the Fu Cheng-Xian Scholarship at the age of 10 as the youngest of only four violinists accepted that year. She received her Master’s of Music and Bachelor’s of Music in Violin Performance from the New England Conservatory, where she studied with Donald Weilerstein.

Jing has performed extensively around the world--her most memorable concert performances including those given in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Singapore and her native China. She has appeared in numerous recitals and programs, including the Temple Israel’s Schmier Concert in Detroit; the premiere of the Perlman Music Residency Program in Vermont; and many others at New England Conservatory and Shanghai Conservatory--where she has often been invited to visit back and play as a top graduate and renowned alumna. Jing has also performed as a soloist with the Xiamen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Shanghai Broadcasting Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie.

Jing has won multiple national and international competitions, including fourth prize at the Fourth International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians, the Gold Award in the Second "Pu Gong Ying" National Violin Competition, and third prize in the Seventh National Youth Violin Performance Competition. She was a semi-finalist in the 2009 Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competition and in the 2012 San Diego Symphony auditions for violin. Jing was a finalist in the 2011 Cleveland Orchestra and 2012 Chicago Symphony Orchestra auditions. She has attended festivals such as the Morningside Music Bridge Summer Camp in Canada, the Aspen Music Festival in Colorado, the Perlman Music Program and the Perlman Music Program’s Chamber Music Workshop.

Outside of her mastery of the violin, Jing starred in a 2002 Chinese film "Together," which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. In her spare time, Jing enjoys spending time with her friends and being outdoors.
