Program bio from Show 199:
Jingxuan Zhang (piano), 16, was born in Beijing, China where he began taking piano lessons at the age of five. His family moved to the US in 2001, when Jingxuan was eight years old, and settled in Westfield, IN a year later. He plays the string bass in the Carmel High School orchestra and studies music with Arnaldo Cohen at the Jacob’s School of music. Through From the Top, Jingxuan recently received a Steinway piano courtesy of Rick Daigle. Now that he has a new piano, he plans to use his Young Artist Award on education, including tuition at the Jacob’s School of Music Precollege Program. When he’s not practicing, Jingxuan volunteers for the Key Club and likes to swim and read fantasy novels.
