Alumni Perspectives: Ryan Cheng (2016, YCIS Hong Kong)
Since graduating from Yew Chung, I've been studying violin at the Eastman School of Music, in Rochester, New York. I have been continuing the musical activity I participated in Yew Chung, playing regularly in orchestra and operas. I've been given the opportunity at Eastman to work with composers of new works, as well as experts on some of the oldest works of Western classical music. I also was at the Bowdoin International Music Festival over the summer, where I worked on solo and chamber music with renowned teachers from around the USA.
I am very happy that I had so many musical opportunities at Yew Chung, for if I did not, the experiences I have had would never have happened.
