Judith Tsui, cello

Judith Tsui is currently a physician and researcher at Boston University School of Medicine. She cares for patients at Boston Medical Center and her research is centered on hepatitis C and substance use. She studied cello with Ardyth Alton in the pre-college program at the Juilliard School where she graduated in 1986. Summer music experience included Greenwood Music Camp and Aspen Music Festival. She was accepted to Juilliard’s college division, but declined in order to attend Princeton University where she majored in Anthropology and was pre-med. At Princeton, she was principle cellist of the University Orchestra and soloed with the orchestra as a concerto competition winner.
Following graduation, she enrolled in a master’s program in performance at the Eastman School of Music, before making the final decision to enter a career in medicine. She graduated from New York University’s School of Medicine in 1997, and has since lived in Portland, Atlanta, and San Francisco prior to moving to Boston in 2008. Judith enjoys spending her “free” time with her daughters Stella and Agnes.
