Lipeng Wu
Artistic Leadership

Artistic Leadership, Lipeng Wu is a young musician who actively contributes to the music scenes in Canada. Since he was seven, he has been studying dizi under the influence of Jinming Cai, a dizi virtuoso from Nanjing University of the Arts. In 2005, he got invited to join Nanjing University’s Chinese orchestra. With the orchestra, he played in many festivals and also participated in a culture-exchange tour to Japan and South Korea. After moving to Canada in 2007, he has been frequently asked to perform at the Saskatoon Chinese New Year Gala and annual Folk Fest as a dizi soloist. Bringing Chinese traditional music to the local communities and expanding the love for Chinese music became the goal in his music career. After settling in Toronto, he joined Toronto Chinese Orchestra where he found lots of people had shared the same goal as his. He regularly performed with TCO in annual concerts as well as playing dizi concertos. In 2010, he has been invited to join a Chinese-Western fusion instrumental band ͞Spire͟ where he performs regularly in many festivals and New Year galas. Lipeng currently teaches dizi both privately and at other organizations, including Yip’s Canada: Music Montessori School and Toronto Shaolin Quanfa Institute. He also conducted workshops for the Toronto Catholic District School Board’s Asian Heritage Month and World Music Class at York University. His music demonstrates refined techniques and strong manifestation of expressions in the art of dizi playing.
