She was also a finalist in the Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow and she has won the Australian National Youth Concerto competition. Meriden's head of music David Slater said Zhen's talents had taken her around the world, including solo appearances with the Udmurt Orchestra in Japan, Melbourne String Ensemble and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. ''She's more than just a student really, she has already had an international performing career with these competitions that are so incredibly selective,'' he said. Mr Slater described Zhen's playing as ''exquisite''. ''It's a sweet beautiful sound but it is also very powerful and virtuosic, technically very, very brilliant,'' he said. ''She'll be playing some really quite sweet and lovely music and she'll be playing some things that are flashes of fire and brilliance.'' Tickets cost $20 or $12 concession. Phone 9752 9444.
