She has worked with world-class conductors such as Charles Dutoit, Ivan Fischer, and Paavo J√§rvi.

Ms. Shi regularly performs with the New Juilliard Ensemble and AXIOM, and has premiered numerous compositions, two of which were dedicated to her by composers Ross Griffey and Aaron Severini.

As a passionate educator, Ms. Shi is a recipient the Morse Teaching Artist Fellowship and a teaching fellow for Juilliard’s Music Advancement Program.
