Di Wu made her professional debut at the age of 14 with the Beijing Philharmonic, and has since appeared with orchestras such as Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Hamburg Philharmoniker, Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, and Singapore Symphony Orchestra, to name a few. In addition to orchestra engagements, Ms. Wu is also sought after as a recitalist. In New York, she made debuts at Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, and has also appeared in such music centers as Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as at the Ravinia Festival and the Portland Piano Festival. She is a frequent performer in Europe and in major venues throughout Asia. Her most recent appearance in Tokyo, at an arena concert recorded and released by Epic Records in Japan, took place before an audience of over 11,000.
