Jey Ping began learning the violin as a young child from his father and has enjoyed playing ever since. Through high school and college, he studied with Yuly Ilyashov and trained through his school orchestra program, the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra, and the Missouri All-State Orchestra. He performed with the Ladue Strolling Strings on multiple tours through Europe, Branson, Washington D.C., and state dinners. Jey received the Lois Percival Orchestra Award during his senior year in high school. He is an alum of the Masterworks Festival and served as concertmaster of the Washington University Symphony Orchestra, Washington University Chamber Orchestra, Young People's Symphonic Orchestra, and St. Louis All Suburban Orchestra.
After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Economics, Jey continued to keep music a part of his life, on top of his job working at SAP. He worked as a part-time violin teacher at Ladue and Mehlville and led the Ladue Strolling Strings. He has served as concertmaster of the Jacksonville Symphony Society and as principal second violin with the Town and Country Symphony Orchestra.
Today Jey lives near Johnson City, TX and continues to study and play as many different styles of fiddling as he can get his hands on, drawing inspiration from fellow musicians at folk schools, shows, fiddle festivals, jam sessions, and dances. He regularly plays jazz shows at The Ragtime Oriole in Marble Falls, TX and plays 6-string fiddle and mandolin in Country and Western bands in the hill country. He plays in community orchestras such as the San Antonio Community Orchestra, Fredericksburg Community Orchestra, and Heart of Texas Orchestra. Jey is also the substitute organist for multiple churches in Blanco County.
