About Zhe Lin | percussionist

Classical

Zhe Lin demonstrates, with extraordinary sensitivity, that Marimba is no longer an estranged instrument in the European concert halls, but rather a versatile keyboard instrument, which can be played in a variety of solo and ensemble settings. Born in Qingdao/China, she picked up her first pair of drum sticks at the tender age of five and just seven years later she received a scholarship, which enabled her to study at the Beijing Central Conservatory of Musicwith Prof. Zhao. Further studies she accomplished at the University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart, Germany with Prof. M.Klimsara, Prof. K.Dreher, Prof. H.Löhle and J.Spitschka. Zhe Lin played in various ensembles, including the China Youth Symphony Orchestra (Solo Timpani), the Youth National Chinese Wind Orchestra, the Beijing Jian Li Percussion Ensemble, the Orchestra of the Stuttgart State Opera House, the Talking Drums Ensemble. The gifted percussionist gained international recognition in 2008 when she was awarded second prize at the 5th World Marimba Competitionin Stuttgart/Germany. In addition, she displayed her technical brilliance and outstanding musical expression by receiving first prize at both the 2nd International Marimba Competition of Chinain 2010 and the 59th German Music Universities Competitionin May 2011.
