Evangeline Lien was born in California. She began her piano lessons at the age of 6 and made her public piano debut recital at the age of 9 at the Claremont Community School of Music. She won the 1st prize of the piano lower division in the John Walker Competition 2018. At the age of 8, she started to play the violin. The unique sound of the viola had attracted her attention at that time, so soon she decided to switch to the viola at the age of 9. She as well received the 1st prize of the lower string division as a viola player in the John Walker Competition 2019. In the following year, she received the State Honor award of MTAC and enjoyed performing music in public. She was frequently invited to perform in the mayor recitals and local senior home. Besides playing the music, she enjoys dancing, reading, and travelling with her family.
