Ethan Liu is 16 years old and will be a junior at Ladue Horton Watkins High School. After he fell in love with the viola at the age of 14, he began private lessons with Professor Matthew Pickart at the Community Music School of Webster University. In August of 2020, he joined the Young People’s Symphonic Orchestra at CMS.
Besides playing the viola, Ethan also enjoys playing the piano, playing badminton, and reading.
He is very thankful for the kindness and support of his family, friends, and teachers that encouraged him to get into the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra.
