With her particular interest in German composers, she has participated in masterclasses all across Europe where coaches have included Tanja Bender-Becker, Ulf Schneider and more. She has also performed in concert venues such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Royal Festival Hall for orchestral concerts under conductors such as Marin Alsop, Karina Canellakis and John Rutter.

Jisu Song viola

Currently in her first year of postgraduate performance degree at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Jisu Song is a violist from Korea. Born in a musical family, she started with the violin at the age of 6 and continued playing through undergraduate studies under Professor Neri Kim. However, she was drawn by the warm and sonorous sound of the viola and started learning the instrument with violist Steven Lee. After a year on the viola she was accepted into the prestigious Asian Youth Orchestra in 2017, where she embarked on a world tour, performing over 20 concerts in Asia, America and Europe. In 2019, she accepted the offer from the Royal Academy of Music in London to pursue a Master of Arts in Performance degree, studying under Professor Yuko Inoue. Being a keen orchestral musician, she has performed with numerous ensembles over the world, including the RAM Academy Symphony Orchestra and the USP Chamber Orchestra in Korea which she is a regular member.
