Angelina Yang

Angelina Yang, originally from China, is a year 11 student at Hillcrest High School. Music features highly in her life. She started playing the flute at the age of 10 and fell under the charm of the instrument almost immediately. Angelina also began piano playing at the age of five.

In recent times she performed with the New Nature Ensemble in Hamilton and Auckland, where a mixture of Chinese and Western instruments were used to bring to life the beautiful melodies of China. Cultural diversity forms an essential ingredient of New Zealand society. Angelina loves her Chinese cultural heritage deeply and draws many inspirations from Chinese art, as she promotes traditional Chinese music to the people of New Zealand.
