I am an award-winning and popular musician that plays various instruments such as the Chinese Transverse Bamboo Flute (Dizi), the Chinese Vertical Bamboo Flute (Xiao), the Chinese Bottle Gourd Silk (Hulusi), the Chinse Reed Flute (Bawu), the piano and the Chinese Zither (Guzheng). I am also a singer and song-writer. My musical journey started under the guidance of many of the most well-known professors in China, such as Chunling Lu (Dizi), Yue Chen (Dizi & Xiao), Xiaosheng Zhao (piano) and Baili Fang (piano). I achieved level ten in both the Chinese Bamboo Flute (Dizi) and the piano. I graduated from the Northwestern University, and pursued further study at the Berklee School of Music and the Central Conservatory of Music in China.

I am blessed to have performed over three hundred shows for major organizations around the world in just the past three and a half years. I love performing for my corporate clients such as Bloomberg, Google, Apple, Hutchison Whampoa Limited, MGM Grand, Caesars Entertainment, Northern Trust, Ecolab, Miller Light, Noodoe, Presence Health and many more! I have also partnered with lots of great non-profit organizations including the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project, Fulcrum Point New Music Project, the Illinois Arts Council Foundation, Lions Club International, etc.. I was honored to be invited to perform at many forums and fundraisers for prominent social and business leaders, such as Bill Gates, Cindy Crawford, Justin Trudeau, Anna Wintour, Indra Nooyi and Jack Ma. I also enjoy travelling to headline concerts in many lovely cities like LA, NY, LV, Lake Tahoe, Knoxville, Muscatine, Columbus, Grand Rapids, Miami, London, Seoul, Tokyo Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.

I am humbled to have won numerous awards in music and performing arts. Some of my awards include:

2018 Best Asian Entertainer Nominee for the Chicago Music Award;
First Prize for the Chinese Songwriter Contest in the USA in 2018;
2018 CCTV Global Brand Ambassador of USA;

Showcased and interviewed by many major TV and radio stations, for instance, CCTV, Shanghai Media Group (SMG), Pear Video, NBC, ABC, CMT, MTV, the Style Network, Hawaii Public Radio, KPTZ, KOWS, WLUW, and WMFT, I have been featured on numerous publications, for example, Xinhua News, China News Agency, People's Daily, Chicago Sun-times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Magazine, Time Out Chicago, Haute Couture Magazine, and Import Tuner Magazine. I have also appeared on the magazine covers such as the Angel Rising Magazine's 2016 October Issue and the World Class Beauty Queens Magazine's 2017 March Issue. "Jennifer's excellent musical ability and graceful appearance is a beautiful scenery of Chicago, which has attracted the audience and intoxicated the critics", wrote Sing Tao Daily. With a loyal following on various social media sites, I released my original album "Jennifer Zhang ???" to rave reviews, and I was chosen as the lead female singer for the official theme song “Moving as One” of the China's Guantang Lake Tourism Zone. My representative original songs include: Foam of the Ocean, Warmth, Flying High, Moonlit Castle, etc..

I am the band lead for the Chicago Chinese Music ensemble and has assembled a rock band that constantly tours around the midwest area. I was also elected as a board member for the Chinese American Museum of Chicago and an associate board member for the Vander Cook College of Music.

I am a Shanghai native and I currently live in Chicago, Illinois. Outside of music and performances, I enjoy traveling, playing with my puppy Martini, exploring different cuisines, talking to other amazing humans on Gigmasters, and great times with good friends! I look forward to making your events very special, (even more) fun, and the most memorable! :)

Jennifer and her performing group gave a wonderful music presentation as well as explanation of the origins of the instruments she brought to our event. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed her performance. I also loved her original song that she sang for our group.

BRAVO WITH 5 SHINING STARS! Jennifer is a highly accomplished and amazing entertainer. Furthermore, she is well spoken, thoughtful, incredibly personable, and genuinely gracious. Jennifer was the STAR of the recent Chinese New Year Party at my house. I submitted my request on Christmas Eve and she called me on my mobile phone immediately that night. Jennifer is extremely prompt with communication and is also well prepared. She customized her performance to the audience that evening. The 50+ guests all loved meeting her and she was very engaging with everyone. I would highly recommend Jennifer to bring great energy and talent to your special event!
