Born in Beijing and raised in Toronto, Lily started intensive studies on the violin after her grandfather passed away and left her a violin as her 14th birthday gift. At age 15, under the tutelage of Jessica Fang Jia, a former member of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Lily earned a competitive spot in the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra. There, she was conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, Jean-Philippe Trembay and Susan Haig. In their three and a half years together, Ms. Jia built up Lily's repertoire to the Grade 10 level of the Royal Conservatory of Music of Canada.
In 2009, Lily recommenced her violin studies in New York with performing artist Jennifer Choi, a former student of Dorothy Delay. In 2010, Lily accepted the invitation of Maestro Tremblay to join l'Orchestre de la Francophonie Canadienne for its summer residency in Montreal during which they gave a performance lauded "Quel héroïsme!" by Claude Gingras of La Presse.
Subsequently, she travelled to China to study at the invitation of Professor Min Jia Yee of the Tianjin Conservatory of Music. On her return, she gave her first New York performance in the New York Chamber Players, under Maestri Giancomo Franci and Delio Cassetta and subsequently joined the New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble under conductors Timothy Hutto and José Alejandro Guzmán, followed by the New York Repertory Orchestra under Conductor David Leibowitz.
Currently, Lily is teaching, composing and studying with two-time Grammy nominee Jesse Mills, still on the violin which her grandfather left her.
