On Thursday 23 June 2022, Virtual Circle – the digital content platform from HarrisonParrott – presents 15-year-old British violinist Leia Zhu in concert from London’s iconic St Martin-in-the-Fields.

Lauded for her musical maturity, expressive interpretations and impressive technical ability, Leia Zhu is recognised as a star of the future. Having first picked up a violin at the age of four, she has thrilled audiences across the world ever since.

Recorded live at St Martin-in-the-Fields on 7 June 2022 as part of the HP Futures series, this concert brings well-known works from the violin canon to St Martin-in-the-Fields, with a recital featuring W.A. Mozart’s Sonata in E Minor K304, Edvard Grieg’s Sonata in G Minor Op.45, César Franck’s Sonata in A Major and Pablo de Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen.

Leia will join the digital concert live via the chat-feed in order to answer audience members’ questions and give personal insights into her performance and has also designed and created an exclusive NFT artwork, which will be available for purchase as part of a ticket bundle.
