Ma-Wolfe Zilin

Chinese Music Teacher

I received my bachelor in Music Education degree, Major in Voice Minor in Piano, from East China Normal University before getting my Master of Music in Voice Pedagogy and Performance from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, where I studied with American opera singer Dr. Sharon Sweet. While in graduate school, I was a member of the Westminster Symphonic Choir and Jubilee Choir. I made my debut with Berlin Philharmonic under Sir Simon Rattle at Carnegie Hall, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Daniele Gatti at Carnegie Hall, and Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin at Kimmel Center, Philadelphia. In additional to performing, I have enjoyed interning as art administrator at Princeton Festival for Season 2015 & 2016 under Executive and Artistic Director Richard Tang Yuk and worked as production assistant with National Children’s Chorus. Currently I'm also a music teacher, artist, and private music coordinator at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop. In my free time, I enjoy learning new languages, dailey barre and cycle class, and trying new restaurants with me husband. I am so excited to share my passion for music with all my students and create inspiring music for others.
