Yunxi Peng

I was born in Guangzhou, China, in 2000. My grandfather was Peng Jiahuang, a well-known composer, with whose father I began learning violin. In 2012, I was admitted to the Middle School attached to Xinghai Conservatory of Music in Guangzhou. Six years later, I started my undergraduate study at the Xinghai Conservatory of Music. When in school, I have had private lessons and master classes with Midori Goto, Ian Swensen, and Chen Xi, the Silver Prize of the Twelfth International Tchaikovsky Violin Competition. In 2019, I won the University Scholarship for Professional Excellence. In 2020, I was appointed as the Principal of The Symphony Orchestra of Xinghai Conservatory of Music.
