Jingyi

The Allegheny Chapter of the American Musicological Society is pleased to announce that the 2019 West Virginia University Press Award for the best graduate student paper presented at either the Fall or Spring meeting goes to Jingyi Zhang for her paper “Fred Ho’s The Warrior Sisters (1998): A Performance of ‘Transformative Interracialism.'”

Jingyi, a musicologist-pianist from Singapore, is currently pursuing her Ph.D. degree in historical musicology at Harvard University. Her research interest focuses on musical borrowing in the works of Chinese-American composers, and contemporary opera. Jingyi has presented at AMS chapter conferences, and she was recently awarded both a grant from Harvard Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies and a Richard F. French Fellowship to conduct research in Basel and Guangzhou over the summer of 2019. An active performer and musicologist, Jingyi holds a double-degree BM in musicology and piano performance at Oberlin Conservatory under a Dean’s Scholarship Award, as well as a double-degree MA in musicology and MM in piano performance at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music under a three-year Jacobs fellowship. At Oberlin Conservatory, Jingyi served as Charles McGuire’s music history course tutor for all incoming music undergraduates. She was also actively involved in piano pedagogy and was a secondary piano program teacher led by Andrea McAlister. An avid performer, Jingyi has participated in numerous piano masterclasses by Edward Auer, José Ramón Mendez, Marian Hahn, and Mary Wu. She was also invited to perform in Singapore and several cities in China including Hangzhou, Changsha, and Wuhan. Upon graduating from Oberlin Conservatory, she was awarded the Carol Nott Pedagogy Prize for her exemplary efforts in music pedagogy. Last year, Jingyi was invited by Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) to be their guest music lecturer in the summer, teaching a course on Introduction to Western Music History.
