Hui Weng, a Guzheng virtuoso steeped in age-old Chinese traditions, has crossed borders that few others have dared to. Hui has been awarded the gold medal for the National Rising Star and Oriental Artist, among others, for her performances in major national and international competitions.  In 2011, Hui successfully released her first album "Men of Letters". After she landed in the US, she made her American debut with “Twin Flower”. Hui held her first benefit Concert for Autism in May 2014 in Jordan Hall and successfully premiered the Guzheng concerto piece "The Rumble of Spring".  Since Hui has arrived in the US, her role has developed beyond Guzheng performance to encompass singing, dancing, composing and curating new works. 

As an active Guzheng player, Hui has appeared in recitals in Beijing, Shanghai, Chicago, Boston and more.

Born in Xuzhou, China, Hui Weng studied with Professor Wang Zhou, a renowned master of the traditional Guzheng and musical educator in China. At the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, she got her Bachelor's degree. While in China, she participated in many premiers of works by a new generation of Chinese composers such as Tan Dun, Yi Chen, Xiaogang Ye and many others.
