Andrew Ling

Violin

A native of Hong Kong, Andrew Ling is currently the principal violist of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.  He attended Indiana University, where he completed his undergraduate studies with Henryk Kowalski, and his graduate studies at Indiana University Ik-Hwan Bae.  He was under the tutelage of Cho-Liang Lin at Rice University in Houston.

 

Ling began studying the violin at the age of six under the tutelage of the late Professor Lin Yaoji of the Central Conservatory of Music, Beijing.  As a child, he toured Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region performing extensively throughout these regions with the Hong Kong Yip's Children's Choir as its resident violin soloist, as well as appearing regularly as a soloist with the Pan Asia Symphony Orchestra.  His performed Walton’s Viola Concerto under the baton of international award winning conductor, Jimmy Tsang to critical acclaim.  He has also collaborated with the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra and the China Film Philharmonic Orchestra, and has given recitals in Hong Kong, the United States and Austria.

 

Ling is also an active chamber and orchestral musician, having assumed the role of concertmaster at various orchestras, including the IU Concert Orchestra, the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra, and has also served as the principal violist of the IU Philharmonic Orchestra.  He has performed with Cho-Liang Lin, Jaime Laredo, Trey Lee, the Shanghai String Quartet and has been invited as a guest artist at the Chamber Residency of Banff Centre in Canada and the Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival.

 

Ling is a semi-finalist of the Benjamin Britten International Violin Competition.  He has won the violin and viola concerto competitions of Indiana University in 2003 and 2008 respectively, and his performances with the Indiana University orchestras has garnered him high praises, both from audiences and critics.

 

Michael Mak

Piano

Michael Mak began playing the piano since the age of five, and has remained a devoted performer ever since.  He studied initially with Lulu Chiu, and later with Nancy Loo.  Having won numerous awards at both local music festivals and abroad, he was quickly and widely recognized as a gifted pianist for his obvious passion and talent.  Mak’s enthusiasm for both solo and chamber music has led to numerous appearances in both genres, and as a soloist with the Hong Kong Medical Association Orchestra.  In 2001, Mak made his debut solo recital with an all-Chopin programme.  His second recital soon followed in 2003, as a fund-raising event for CUHK Medical Faculty’s SARS and infectious diseases research of the WE CARE Foundation.  He is currently working as an orthopaedic surgeon, while piano playing remains a firm passion and life-long endeavour.
