Ray Chen hopes to attract young people to classical music through social media and expand the audience of the genre, and so far, he has amassed more than two million followers on SoundCloud alone. In particular, his self-produced series of humorous and educational YouTube videos are proof of the effectiveness of this approach. He has even become the first ever classical musician to be invited to write a regular blog about his life as a touring soloist for the largest Italian publishing house, RCS Rizzoli. In his unstinting efforts to break down barriers between classical music, fashion, and pop culture, he is supported by Giorgio Armani and was recently featured in Vogue magazine.
