Jiazhi Wang has performed as a soloist and chamber musician at top international venues around the world.

As an active violinist, Jiazhi has had the opportunity to collaborate with leading figures in the world of classical music, including Valery Gergiev, John Adams, Long Yu, Peter Oundjian and Leon Botstein. She has performed as a soloist with the American Symphony Orchestra, Sendai Philharmonic and Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra.

Chang Pan earned his Master of Music and Master of Musical Arts from the Yale School of Music, where he also received the prestigious Aldo Parisot Prize for his outstanding contribution. In recent years, Chang appeared as a soloist throughout U.S. and China. In 2015, he was invited to give a recital in Salon de Virtuosi--an organization in New York City that presents emerging talented musicians from around the world, and was the winner of the Annual Grand Award from Salon de Virtuosi as one of the best musicians in it’s 2015-16 season. Chang also had his debut concert in Carnegie Hall, and New York Concert Review describes him as a musician who “possesses the technical ease to bring that inspiration into his instrument and project it to the listener. His bow arm, intonation, and the variety of colors he obtains from the cello are all sublime.”
