# Lu Wang Strings
Lu Wang Strings is a newly born group consisting of two violinists and one cellist. Inspired by a shared passion for classical music, the three musicians, with their enriching music experience and competitive music talents, came together to form this culturally diverse string group. All members are experienced in playing chamber music as part of duets, trios, quartets, and quintets.
Diane Moon started playing cello at the age of nine and has been highly active in music since that time. Through high school, she played in a variety of music groups, including school, youth, and honor orchestras, as well as many chamber ensembles.
