Born on November 1, 1991, Jazz violinist Volt Witchuporn Jingjit had always been something you would call an energy ball. He started playing the instrument at the age of five and performed in public a few years later. Volt is a Thai violin virtuoso who graduated from Thailand’s prestigious Silpakorn University with Jazz violin degree. In 2015, Volt was awarded a scholarship from Berklee College of Music, where he graduated from.

In Thailand, Volt has remained active as a performer who not only has always maintained his tasty chops, but also his dazzling techniques that identify his sound. A highly likable person who exudes positive attitudes both on and off stage which makes him easy to get along with, his passion for music through his playing and knowledge of repertoires, his strong work ethic and dedication to what he believes in, all of these qualities make him such a rare gem as a true musician and simply a good friend to many. The future surely looks very bright for this young violinist from the Land of Smiles.
