Zhang Jing Zhuo, cello
2010 & 2011: AYO member Present: Principal Cello, Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra In 2010，this was my first year in AYO when I was just 17 years old. I really enjoyed the special six weeks. I attended AYO for two years totally. For now, I still think that time was the most memorable in my life. After AYO tour, I applied Royal Academy of Music in London in 2011. Then I got a full scholarship to study. I finished my bachelor and master degree for five years. Now, I play the cello in Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra as a principal position. I really want to make a huge thank for AYO. I learned orchestral playing and programmes in AYO and I love playing the cello in orchestra from 2010 although I started playing orchestra from 2006. I think AYO let me know I want to play in an orchestra as a job. AYO made me to love music. I am really happy to be able to share my story with you!
