VICTOR XIE  謝叢邦
Violist | Pedagogue

A native of Guangzhou, China, Congbang "Victor" Xie began his early music training on the piano at age nine. At age fourteen, he began studying the violin with Huo Ri-Xing. He moved to the United States with his family at the age of fifteen, and continued his violin studies in San Francisco with Pan Zuo-Han. Attracted by the deeper tone of the viola, he begins to play the viola at age seventeen studying with Yun-Jie Liu. He continue to study both violin and viola simultaneously with both teachers until admitted to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music at age eighteen as a SFCM scholarship recipient, where he earned both B.M. and M.M. in Viola Performance. Mr. Xie focused his study in viola performance and pedagogy at the conservatory under the guidance of his principal teacher Jodi Levitz, studied chamber music with Mark Sokol, Jean-Michel Fonteneau, Axel Strauss, Bettina Mussumeli, Yoshikazu Nagai, etc., and has performed in master classes by renowned artists such as members of the Juilliard String Quartet, Borromeo String Quartet, Kim Kashkashian, etc.

An active performer, Mr. Xie co-premiered the work “Dialogos para dos violas” (later re-titled to “Scherzo”, duett for two violas) by award-winning composer Ilya Demutsky, and "Overseas Call" by Chen Ke. He received his early orchestral training with the Golden Gate Philharmonic in which he served as concertmaster, and later in San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra as assistant principal viola. With the SFSYO, he has performed in some of the iconic concert venues in Central Europe and the U.S. including the Berliner Philharmonie, München Philharmonie, Smetana Hall, Davis Symphony Hall, etc. Mr. Xie’s recent concert engagements include recitals at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music,  and Concert Series at the St.Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco.

Passionate in teaching, besides maintaining his private studio, Mr. Xie is currently on faculty at the Conservatory of Music of the Holy Name School, and Green Octave School of Music.
