Island’s Young Cellist

Jamie Chan

13 year old Jamie Chan is a self-proclaimed Cello and Classical music fanatic, playing in the Taipei Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. Whether at school or in the orchestra, he has a distinct air of maturity and elegance that is very different from the typical schoolchild.

Playing in the school orchestra from an early age, Jamie has often performed in temple celebrations. The frenzy of celebrations combined with the sophistication of classical music paint a very unique scene in Taiwan and showcases a distinct Taiwanese sound.

For Jamie Chan, his cello is his partner. His way to express himself. His way to speak without talking.

“Every time I play the first note, I feel like a hero in the moment.” – Jamie Chan
