United States, La Verne California Viola
Born in Shanghai, China, Peijun started her musical education at the age of four. When she was in Shanghai, Peijun was taking violin lessons from Ms. Yao Shimei, a first violin member retired from Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. Until graduating from Shanghai Normal University, she did not study music majors in schools. After 5 years working in the tourism industry, Peijun hopes to study music in the United States.
Peijun has earned a master’s degree of Music Education (M.M. Instrumental Emphasis) of Azusa Pacific University (APU) under the guidance of Dr. John Burdett. With two years of practicing, rehearsing and performing in several orchestras such as Azusa Pacific Symphony Orchestra, Claremont Symphony Orchestra, and having attended violin and viola classes from the studio of Dr. Alex Russell, Peijun became a candidate for the Artist Certificate program at APU to pursue further professional performing skills in violin and viola.
Currently, Peijun has earned the first Artist Certificate in Combined Violin and Viola Performance in APU’s history. She is also a violist of APU Symphony Orchestra and Azusa String Quartet.
In Fall 2019, the Azusa String Quartet was selected to participate in the chamber music masterclass lectured by the legend Glenn Dicterow, who was the former concertmaster of NY Phil. In Summer 2020, Peijun was awarded the Apprenticeship position in viola for the MasterWorks Festival 2020 Program, which is regarded as “the most well-qualified and responsible applicants with significant education, performance and leadership experience.” During the MasterWorks Festival 2020, under the tutelage of Ms. Lisa Boyko, a violist member of the Cleveland Orchestra, Peijun was selected to perform Dvorak Piano Quintet in A Major for a masterclass lectured by Ken-David Masur, the word-renowned conductor.
In Spring 2021, Peijun won the 1st Place of Viola, Group G (age 23 and up), at the King’s Peak International Music Competition.
Peijun also received additional viola and violin guidance from Ms. Lisa Boyko, Ms. Shen Xidi, and Ms. Ding Zhinuo.
