Yu-Ting Wu is a violinist from the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area. Born in Taichung, Taiwan, she moved with her family to Maryland at the age of four and began studying violin with her father. She has performed regularly in orchestras since the age of ten, and in 2008 received full-scholarship to attend Towson University in Maryland.
Working closely with student composers at Towson University, Yu-Ting developed an interest in performing new music. A colleague, Domenic Turchi, dedicated his Sonatina for Violin and Piano to her and it was premiered in the fall of 2011. The premiere received a positive review from Baltimore Sun’s Tim Smith.
The last two years of undergraduate was when Yu-Ting stepped outside of classical music– performing with the likes of Crack the Sky, Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra, and American Frame Drum Association. Though her musical journey did not end here.
In the fall of 2012, Yu-Ting attended California Institute of the Arts to pursue her Master of Fine Arts Degree in violin performance. She was actively involved in baroque and new music ensembles, industrial rock bands, free improvisation and jazz, folk and indie bands, as well as traditional African and Balinese dances.
Well-versed in all styles of music, Yu-Ting’s playing has been described as “...absolutely sensational…egoless, and subtle.” Her musical sensibility plays to the strengths of other artists, as well as her own artistic endeavors. One of which is reila, the artist name she recently released a single under. She has also performed with Deadmau5, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Circa Survive, and Camila.
Yu-Ting is currently bi-coastal between Los Angeles and New York and can be found recording and performing in all major venues and studios in both cities.
