Meet Lucia Lin

Born in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, Lucia Lin made her debut at age eleven, performing the Mendelssohn Concerto with the Chicago Symphony and went on to be a prize winner of numerous competitions, including the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Described as a soloist with “virtuosity and insight” who is “passionate and graceful” (Indianapolis Star), and whose playing has “a genuine fresh quality not often heard” (Cincinnati Enquirer), Ms. Lin has performed on the international stage, including appearances with orchestras in Europe as well as a solo recital at Carnegie Hall.

At the age of 22, she won a position in the Boston Symphony Orchestra. She then went on to become acting concertmaster with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and subsequently spent two years as Concertmaster with the London Symphony Orchestra, where she was leader for numerous tours, including to Japan, Italy, Scotland, and Spain.

A return to the U.S. in 1995 brought her back to the Boston Symphony. She also founded the Boston Trio and then became a member of the Muir String Quartet in 1998.

Lucia teaches applied violin, chamber music, and orchestral studies as Professor of Music at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts. In the summers she participates in a mentorship program at the Tanglewood Music Center as well as an intensive quartet program at Boston University Tanglewood Institute.

As an accomplished dancer, she collaborated with the dance company Snappy Dance Theater in the world premiere of “String Beings”, an innovative piece integrating music with dance and technology. The work was performed at the Wimberley Theater in Boston where Ms. Lin “proved to be as fearless and fine a dancer as musician.”

Ms. Lin has recorded for many labels including a recent recording with the Muir String Quartet performing works of Kreisler, Berg and Schulhof. And most recently collaborated with harpist, Ann Hobson Pilot and bandoneon player, J.P. Jofre, featuring the works of Astor Piazzolla.
