Zhaowei Qu


Hi, I am Zhaowei Qu, a 16 year old tuba player in tenth grade at Cupertino High School in California. I started playing tuba in sixth grade beginning band and have been hooked ever since. I have earned the first chair position in numerous honor bands including the 2019 California State Middle School Concert Band, 2020 Santa Clara County Honor Band, and 2020 California High School Concert Band. During the summer of 2020, I was appointed principal tuba by the Golden State Youth Orchestra. Despite the challenges of being a musician during COVID-19, I continued to participate in various events online like the International Tuba and Euphonium Festival 2020. In addition, I took part in the virtual Santa Clara County Honor Band 2021 and California All State Concert Band 2021. Recently, I auditioned for Falcone Festival 2021. My teacher is Tony Clements. Peter Wahrhaftig and Jonathan Hsu taught me in the past.
