Julian Tso

Associate Orchestra Concerto Competition Winner


An orchestra member of Mission San Jose High School, Fremont, Julian Tso, age 15, started learning the viola in the summer before fifth grade. Just three years into playing the instrument, he got accepted into the honor orchestra of the California Orchestra Directors Association, and was nominated to perform at the Winter Conference of the CMEA (California Association of Music Education) Bay Section as first chair viola. Julian enjoyed guest-performing alongside professional musicians at the 2015-2016 season-opener of Fremont Symphony Orchestra. In March 2016, Julian and his violin companion were awarded Superior-Command Performance, the highest possible rating, at the CMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival. In October, he was featured at a Young Musicians Violin Benefit Concert which successfully raised over $3,000 to benefit the After-School Band Program of Fremont Education Foundation. Julian attributes his desire to pursue excellence to the music teacher of his junior high school.  He currently studies the viola under Ker Qi.
