Meet the 13-year-old violinist who’s about to make her British concerto debut


She’s performed in more than a dozen countries and has earned herself the nickname “the violin girl”.

The Newcastle violinist Leia Zhu will make her British professional concerto debut this weekend.

It’s an impressive set of achievements – even more remarkable considering she’s just 13 and fits her classical music career around her schoolwork.
