Orchestra Coordinator

Angel Yan

Angel began fulfilling her love of culture and music with the GuZheng at the age of 15 under the instruction of Buyun Zhao. Growing up in the U.S. garnered a curiosity to explore her Chinese roots, and she did so through the Chinese Arts & Music Association.

Over the years, Angel has performed with the Washington Chinese Youth Orchestra, Northwest GuZheng Ensemble and U.S. China Music Ensemble in venues from community gatherings to the Benaroya Hall in Seattle. She is also the coordinator of the Northwest Jigu Drum Ensemble.

Her involvement with the Chinese Arts & Music Association has created a deeper understanding of the arts and strengthened her leadership skills. She appreciates the ability to give back to her community and looks forward to sharing her love of traditional Chinese music to broader audiences.
