About Chen

I was born into a musical family in Beijing, China. At ten years of age, I became an honor student in the pre-college division of China’s most prestigious conservatory, the Central Conservatory of Music.

In 2005, I was the First Prize Winner in the youth division at the Ai-Qin Cup China National Cello Competition. I have performed solo and chamber music concerts, as well as concertos with many orchestras in China and the Curtis Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed in venues such as the China National Centre for the Performing Arts, Beijing Concert Hall, Tianjin Concert Hall, Sapporo Concert Hall and Suntory Hall in Japan, and Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia.

In 2014 and 2015, I was the principal cellist of the Pacific Music Festival Orchestra and performed concerts under the baton of Maestro Valery Gergiev. In 2016, I was the principal cellist of the Verbeir music festival. I have also participated in masterclasses with Andres Diaz, David Geringas, David Garber, Richard Aaron, Hai-Ye Ni, Jian Wang, Li-Wei Qing, and Gary Hoffman.
