One of the most talented violinists in the world, Fiona Zheng grew up under persecution by the communist government in China before joining Shen Yun Performing Arts, in New York. At the age of just twelve, police stormed into her home and ransacked it because of her family’s peaceful spiritual belief in Falun Dafa. Her mother died not long after. Zheng has turned her personal tragedy into inspiration for musical triumph. She brings her powerful and uplifting performances of the most difficult violin pieces in history to audiences around the world.
