The Violinist of Choice for Regional Events
Shu Mei has emerged as the violinist of choice for many regional and local artists. As a classical violinist, she has performed with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. In 2005, she had the opportunity to perform as a soloist to celebrate bilateral Singapore-Malaysia ties in front of 30,000 people at the Penang Indoor Stadium. Shu Mei has also been invited to perform with renowned jazz diva Marina Xavier in Thailand, as well as at the Jakarta and Penang Jazz Festivals.
Her association as a member of the ethnic fusion group Hybrid, swing group Goodfellas, and Latin-pop group San Nikkis provided the experience to expand and develop her formidable range of musical instincts. Shu Mei has shared the stage performing and collaborating with Singapore music icon Iskandar Ismail. She has been called upon to grace the opening ceremonies of major corporate events such as Canon, Honda, and Saxo Bank. Her inimitable beauty and energetic violin performances have launched high-end products associated with style and elegance, including BMW cars, Cartier jewelry, and Kerastase beauty products.
Shu Mei has also recorded on the CD albums of other artists. She played on Marina Xavier’s “Where Do You Start” and “I Thought About You,” Amanda Jantzen’s “Northern Star,” Raveena’s “From Deep Within,” Andayoma’s “Palette of Colors,” and Francisco Raquiza’s “Blue Love” and “Gymboro.”
