Classical Guitar Virtuoso Meng Su
Multifaceted guitarist Meng Su is captivating audiences around the world with her stunning virtuosity and refined artistry. New York Concert Review called her performance seemingly effortless and stunningly polished. Add to that a beautiful  and fashionable!  stage presence, and she is poised to be in high demand while Classical Guitar Magazine wrote that she has already reached the status of a seasoned artist.

In addition to her busy solo career, Meng Su is an avid chamber musician who tours regularly in the Beijing Guitar Duo and as a soloist with orchestras. Ms. Su has performed in over 30 different countries around the world in halls such as the Concertgebouw, Palau de Musica, Tchaikovsky Hall and the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing. This past summer, Ms. Su collaborated with ballerina YuanYuan Tan in a dance musical and toured China together to critical acclaim.

Meng Sus performances and recordings have impressed the public with an ability and artistry that exceeds her years. (Baltimore Sun) Her debut duo CD MaracaĆ­pe received a Latin Grammy nomination for the titled piece, which was dedicated to the Duo by renowned guitarist/composer Sergio Assad. Their second CD, Bach to Tan Dun, a "must-listen" according to composer Tan Dun, has been widely noted for the world-premiere recording of his Eight Memories in Watercolor. A recording in trio, China West, with Maestro Barrueco and the Beijing Guitar Duo was released in May 2014 to critical acclaim. Meng Sus debut solo recording Meng, released in 2016 was called awe-inspiring and this years finest debut by far by Classical Guitar Magazine.

Born in Qingdao, China, Meng Su began studying the guitar at the age of 5 and showed her talents from an early age under the guidance of Prof. Chen Zhi at the Central Conservatory in Beijing. Meng Su has won first-prize in numerous international competitions around the world, the last one being in the prestigious Parkening International Guitar competition in 2015. She graduated with an Artist Diploma, a Masters Degree and Graduate Diploma in Chamber Music with Maestro Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University.

Meng Su teaches at The San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and she is the Artist-in-residence for the Baltimore Classical Guitar Society.
