Ling’s career in music began as a child prodigy at the age of seven, performing to thousands during the Cultural Revolution in China, and where her technical virtuosity won her a place at the prestigious Sichuan Conservatory of Music as their youngest ever student of the erhu.
While studying under Professor Lan Yu Song, she was able to transcend technical accomplishment and become an artist in the truest sense, using her passion and talent to communicate through her music.
Based in Nottingham UK since 1990 Ling performed for several years with the London Chinese Orchestra performing at such venues as the Purcell Rooms and Queen Elizabeth Hall bringing Chinese classical music to a UK audience.
Ling has collaborated with artists in various fields and across many cultures. She has worked diversely with performance artists, theatre designers and playwrights to produce new works which often fuse western art forms with Chinese culture
