Age: 15

School: Sophomore at Bethel Park High School

Family: Parents, Jerome and Sylvia Wu; sister, Jenelle, 12.

Background: In addition to studying the violin since age 8, Wu has been taking piano lessons for the past nine years and performs with the South Hills Junior Orchestra.

Noteworthy: Wu has been selected to play the violin in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association's Honors Orchestra Concert, which will be on Nov. 10, at North Allegheny High School. His music instructor at Bethel Park is Stephanie Glover, who directs the school's orchestra.

Quote: “I practiced a lot over the summer to prepare for the audition, so I felt I was read. But you can't really know what the judges are looking for, so I was still surprised that I was selected for the orchestra.”
