Who We Are

Who We Are

Met through a music competition on the beautiful campus of USC, creSCendo’s co-founders William Li, Michelle Han, Aiden Song and Haonan Qi came together and wanted to initiate something that could bring students with a passion in music together.

The club creSCendo was founded in the spring of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite being part of the pandemic isolation, the club still managed to achieve a staggering 50 active members the same semester it was founded.

Now stronger than ever, creSCendo has taken off and became one of the most active music student organizations on the USC campus.

creSCendo is the one and only Mandarin speaking music club on campus, bringing in performers from all music genres and showcasing performing arts all year round.
