Grace C,

A passionate classical violinist, Grace Chen is a Chinese-American musician who collaborates with musicians and artists of all forms. As a well-rounded player, Grace has worked with violinists Mauricio Fuks and Glenn Dicterow, Itzhak Rshkovsky as well as Sibbi Berhardsson and James Dunham in a chamber setting. She has also performed with orchestral conductors such as Robert Spano and Marin Alsop. Her concert performances have taken place at the Atlanta Symphony Hall, Peggy and Yale Gordon Center for Performing Arts, and Harpa Concert Hall. These invaluable experiences have shaped Grace in a positive way and given her the opportunity to work with various artists and colleagues around the world while establishing her presence in the classical music world.

Aside from performance endeavors, Grace has been building several years of experience as a violin instructor. She first began teaching through an inaugural tutoring program with her high school, teaching and mentoring middle school violin/viola students three times per week after school. During the summers, she was a teaching assistant at the Atlanta Festival Academy, helping in coaching violin sectionals in orchestral rehearsals. More recently, she was a full-time private violin instructor at the Artist Music Academy in Maryland, giving weekly lessons to a studio of seven students and preparing them for seasonal recitals.

Grace began playing the violin at age eight and continued her violin studies with William Pu and Noriko Clift. She holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Violin Performance at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University under the tutelage of Keng-Yuen Tseng. She is currently pursuing her master’s degree with Nicholas Mann at Manhattan School of Music under the Presidential Scholarship.
