Viool 1
YeYe Xu
My name is YeYe, I'm 22 years old and I started violin when I was 6. I grew up in Edinburgh, studying at St Mary's Music School. I read Law with European Legal Studies at King's College London, graduating in 2017; but really I spent more time playing violin than reading books! I have been a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland and Nationaal Jeugd Orkest.

My first Ricciotti tour was in 2017 ('Scottish Fling') as an exchange violinist. It blew me away, changed my ideas of what is 'possible' in music and in orchestra. Every performance is fresh, unpredictable. I'm really delighted to be in such a fun, loving group of musicians!
