Bo Li, who will graduate this year with a master of music degree in viola, has been appointed principal viola with the Atlanta Opera for the 2009-2010 season. Bo Li studied with the late Jesse Levine at the Yale School of Music after graduating from in 2007 from the Beijing Central Conservatory, where he studied with Wing Ho ’87MM, also a student of Levine.
“I would like to show my deep appreciation to Jesse,” Li said. “I could only have received this appointment at Atlanta Opera because of him. He not only taught me how to play music, but also to let me understand how to treat other people and how to live as a man: a great mentor! I have also been taught by Wing Ho for many years, who was Jesse’s former student, and I have learned so much from him also.” MORE
