VC ARTIST | Ray Chen - Menuhin & Queen Elisabeth Comp Grand Prizes

Australian VC 'Artist', violinist Ray Chen has in recent years firmly established himself as one of the new generation's most sought-after international concert artists.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied with Maestro Aaron Rosand, Ray is a former 1st prize winner at the Yehudi Menuhin and Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competitions.

Ray currently performs on the 1715 'Joachim' Stradivarius violin, on generous loan from the Nippon Music Foundation - and was recently invited to join the jury of the 2016 Menuhin Competition.
