Jason Shi

Hey there! My name is Jason Shi and I'm a Computer Science major with a certificate in Statistics and Machine Learning. On campus, I'm part of VTone, an East Asian A Cappella group, and Alpha Omega, a Christian ministry group. I grew up on the East Coast, though I've grown to love my Chinese heritage due in no small part to the Chinese and East Asian Studies departments here at Princeton. At SPOC, I wrestled with the special technique of Peking-style operatic singing, and I left with a newfound appreciation for the art form - the type of appreciation you can only acquire through active participation, and ultimately performance. Coming from a background in vocal percussion, I was very much excited by the unique way that Peking Opera pushes the boundaries of one's own voice. I highly recommend anyone remotely interested in China and Chinese culture to apply to this program!
