Born into a family of artists, Chinese-Canadian pianist Vivian Sui-Rong Li made her concert debut at the age of five. She is now one of China's most respected pianists and teachers. Vivian Li completed her undergraduate studies on a full scholarship at Oberlin Conservatory with the distinguished French pianist Monique Duphil.
