Lauded as one of today's probing musical voices, violinist Nancy Zhou is rapidly building an international profile after winning the 2018 Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition. With a robust online presence that seeks to invigorate appreciation for the art and science of the violin, her thoughtful musicianship resonates with a global audience in such a way that brings her on stage with leading orchestras around the world.
Making her orchestral debut at the age of 13 with her hometown orchestra, the San Antonio Symphony, Nancy went on to collaborate with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, China National Symphony, Kansas City Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Padua Chamber Orchestra, among others. Upcoming engagements include performances with the China Philharmonic Hangzhou Symphony, Sichuan Symphony, National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra of Perugia, and the IRIS Orchestra in Tennessee. She has collaborated with conductors such as Jaap van Zweden, Sakari Oramo, Hannu Lintu, Eun Sun Kim, Peter Oundjian, Christoph Poppen, Jean-Jacques Kantorow, Gilbert Varga, Michael Stern, Darrell Ang, Jurjen Hempel, Muhai Tang, Sebastian Lang-Lessing and Ken-David Masur.
Nancy plays on a Joseph Guarneri violin from 1730-33 known as “Le Sphynx”, on generous loan to her from a private sponsor.
