Chen, 17, will attend Interlochen Arts Camp this summer to study the violin and perform with distinguished youth ensembles. She is the daughter of Li-Han Chen and Shu-Hui Chang. She takes private violin lessons with Michael, Irina and Pasha Tseitlin. Chen has served as the assistant concertmaster in the San Diego Youth Symphony and plays in the International Youth Symphony. She plans to double major in music and science in college. Chen looks forward to the musical atmosphere at Interlochen this summer.

“I know there is a lot to be learned from playing in a new setting with such a diverse group of people. I’ve heard a lot about Interlochen and I know that it will be the highlight of my summer,” Chen said.

Sponsored by Emerson of St. Louis, the Emerson Scholar Program provides the opportunity for outstanding high school musicians to attend Interlochen Arts Camp, located in northwest Michigan. The Emerson Scholars Award provides full tuition, private lessons, and room and board for the six-week summer program. This is the 23rd year Emerson has sponsored the scholarship program.

“Every year, Interlochen Arts Camp brings together some of the most talented and motivated students from around the world,” said Interlochen President Jeffrey S. Kimpton.  “To be recognized as an Emerson Scholar puts these students in a most elite and prestigious group of talented people. It is quite an honor, not only for the students themselves, but also for the people and places that helped them to become the promising young musicians they are.”
