Subaiou Zhang

Subaiou Zhang was born in Tianjin, China and started to play the violin at age 3. Winning a national competition for youth in China at age 7, she engaged in serious study of the violin until age 12 and laid the instrument aside. In 2006, she came to the US pursuing undergraduate studies in the biological sciences. While preparing for medical school, she worked in molecular and genetic research at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston after graduation in 2010. After realizing she wished to pursue music seriously instead, Subaiou resumed her violin studies again in 2012 and entered Boston University’s School of Music to pursue a Master of Music degree in the fall of 2013. Subaiou is currently pursuing a D.M.A. in Violin Performance at Boston University studying with Professor Yuri Mazurkevich. Subaiou won the annual Bach Competition at Boston University in 2015, and performed as concertmaster and soloist with the Wellesley Symphony in 2016. In addition to active freelancing around Boston, Subaiou also performs chamber music with Loki String Quartet, in residence at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Subaiou joined the Brookline Symphony the same time as she began her professional music studies and pursuits, since the fall of 2013, and is most happy and grateful to perform among her talented friends.
