Violinist Yu-Jen Weng

Violinist Yu-Jen Weng is a senior at Interlochen Arts Academy, where she studies with Ara Sarkissian.

She recently visited IPR's Studio A to perform the second movement from the violin concerto by Jean Sibelius. She was joined by collaborative pianist Ya-Ju Chuang.

Yu-Jen told us why Aladdin is her favorite movie and why it's a lot easier to practice at Interlochen than in her hometown of Taipei, Taiwan.
