    Winner of the 2010 Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition among many other prizes, Xiang Yu, a native of Inner Mongolia, is widely regarded as one of today’s most talented and creative young violinists. Xiang is a candidate for NEC’s Artist Diploma and is the only instrumentalist in the prestigious program.

Winning the first prize in the 2012 Tufts/New England Conservatory Soloist Competition, he made his U.S. debut at Boston’s Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops Orchestra under Keith Lockhart.
