Allen Liu, Co-Chair

Allen Liu is a junior at McCallie School. An avid violinist, he has soloed with orchestras, performs chamber music as a founding member of the Ponticello String Trio, has won various solo performance competitions, and has attended festivals such as the Meadowmount School of Music, the Bowdoin International Music Festival, and the National Youth Orchestra 2 program. Outside of music, Allen enjoys Mock Trial and math competitions. He has won top scholarships in the University of Tennessee's Pro2Serve statewide math tournament, is an AIME qualifier, and founded and coaches a MathCounts team in the McCallie Middle School. In his free time, he enjoys going on walks while listening to podcasts, reading about philosophy and ethics, and cooking. This year, he hopes to see STYI generate collaboration and connection among different parts of the musical community through outreach projects and also would like for STYI to help the musical community reach out to non-musicians.
