Tiffany Cheng

Born in Wollongong, Tiffany started playing the violin at the age of four after being inspired by the TV show “Play School”. She began her violin studies with Liana Bonacorsso, Harold Brissenden and Yasuki Nakamura before commencing her tertiary studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with Dr Robin Wilson. In 2014, Tiffany completed a Bachelor of Music (Performance), graduating with First Class Honours. She then moved to Melbourne to study with Sophie Rowell for three years at the Australian National Academy of Music. During the last year of her studies, Tiffany successfully auditioned for her current position in the 2nd violins with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

Her time at ANAM was most enriching as she became a prize winner at the Australian Concerto and Vocal Competition, as well as the Kendall National Violin Competition. In 2017, Tiffany was awarded the Brett and Paul Dean Prize for the Outstanding Performance of an Australian Work for her performance of Julian Yu’s Passacaglia after Biber. Tiffany is also a keen chamber musician, having won the 3MBS Audience Choice award with the Edesia Quartet at the ANAM Chamber Music Competition. She is a founding member of the Tailors Ensemble, a mixed instrumental ensemble which seeks to push the boundaries of chamber music in Australia.
