(March 22, 2012) -- As this year's last installment in the Guest Artist Series, the UTSA Department of Music will present teenage violin virtuoso Nancy Zhou for a concert performance at 7:30 p.m., Monday, March 26 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus.

Under the direction of her father and teacher Long Zhou, Nancy began playing violin at age four and performed her first recital a year later. She returns to San Antonio to perform as a proud graduate of the Keystone School of San Antonio and member of the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio.

Zhou has performed in master classes taught by various leading internationally known virtuosos including Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Peter Oundjian, Pinchas Zuckerman, Glenn Dicterow, Koichiro Harada and Kurt Masur.

A veteran of several international competitions, Zhou was a laureate of the 10th International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in 2010, won the special prize for the best performance of Kaija Saariaho's "Tocar" for violin and piano, and is a recipient of German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter's Circle of Friends Foundation award. Zhou toured with Mutter in Europe, and the duo have performances scheduled in Southeast Asia and the United States.

Upcoming performances include recitals in Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Washington, D.C. Additionally, she will perform as a soloist with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Kuopio Symphony Orchestra, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Baden-Baden Philharmonic, Mid-Texas Symphony Orchestra and San Antonio Symphony Orchestra.

Zhou appeared on the national radio show "From the Top" in 2005 and enrolled in the Aspen Music Festival and New York String Seminar in 2008. She attends Harvard University and the New England Conservatory under the instruction of Miriam Fried, one of the world's preeminent violinists.

Admission to the UTSA concert is $20, $10 for students, military and senior citizens. UTSA students with UTSACard receive free admission. For more information, contact Cynthia Solis at 210-458-5685 or visit the UTSA Department of Music website.
