About the Artist

Zhongxi Lin is one of the most anticipated young pianists after receiving her bachelor’s degree in musicology in 2014. She worked in Fujian Grand Theater after her graduation as an assistant accompanist where she participated in operas such as On Mawei Slope and La bohème. She had the honor to collaborate with some of the most famous artists in the business such as Warren Mok, Guoyong Zhang, and Jonathan Tetelman. While she was working with such amazing musicians, she realized there is much more to explore in the world, so she decided to go on a tour to perform on international stages, such as Italy, Delaware, and Hong Kong. In fall 2017, she started studying with Dr. Zhihua Tang and Dr. Derek Kealii Polischuk at Michigan State University's College of Music for collaborative piano and piano solo. She also attended several music festivals as a concert pianist and piano accompanist, such as the Master Player Festival and the Study Abroad Program in Todi, Italy. She is currently working on her Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) in Collaborative Piano at UC Santa Barbara, studying with the Chair of the UC Santa Barbara Department of Music, Professor Robert Koenig.
