Tomorrow (July 8) I will fly to Bangkok, Thailand for participating the Eighth Thailand International Composition Festival (TICF). My piece, Unbearable Pain and Watery Eyes (2012) for violin, percussion and piano, was selected as one of twelve finalists in the TICF Composition Competition, and will be premiered at the music auditorium (MACM Hall) of Mahidol University on July 14 (10am). I was invited to participate the TICF from July 9 to 14 to attend all the concerts and lectures, and get the feedback of my piece in the Masterclass. I am looking forward to my trip to Bangkok.
By the way, I will travel to Bangkok from July 8 to 18. In these days I will have two pieces performing in Taiwan. Ballade (2012) for violin and percussion will be premiered tomorrow night (7pm, July 8) at the Miaoli International Culture and Tourism Bureau Concert Hall by violinist Yu-Hao Chang and percussionist Sayun Chang. Cave Railroad (2011) for solo alto saxophone will have Taiwan premiered performance at the YAMAHA Artists Service Center (Taipei) by saxophonist Po-Fang Chang on July 17. Although I am not able to attend these two concerts, I believe the performances will be fantastic. Please visit the “Performances” page to get more information of concerts.
There are two performances of my pieces on March 29, but in different states of the United States. I am looking forward to both concerts.
First, Oboe Duo Agosto will perform my Phantasy again in the morning (10:55am). The concert will take place at the Hubbard Music Center Performing Hall of Loomis Chaffee School (Windsor, CT) and is open to the public. It will be the sixth performance of this piece.
Second, saxophonist Po-Fang Chang will premiere my Cave Railroad for solo alto saxophone in the night (8pm) at his Master of Music degree recital. The concert will take place at the Bryan Recital Hall, College of Musical Arts, Bowling Green State University, OH. I will take the Amtrak from Hartford, CT to Bowling Green, OH (long trip!) for the premiere of my solo alto saxophone piece.
Please click the “Performance” page for the direction of the venues, and both concerts are free admission.
Oboe Duo Agosto在早上10點55分於Hubbard Music Center Performing Hall of Loomis Chaffee School（美國康乃狄克州Windsor）演出我的為雙簧管與英國管的《幻想曲》。這場音樂會是公開的，而且是這首曲子的第六次演出。薩克斯風家張柏方在晚上8點於美國俄亥俄州鮑林格林州立大學音樂院的Bryan Recital Hall將要首演我寫給他的中音薩克斯風獨奏曲《山隧鐵道》。我將會搭美國國鐵Amtrak從康州哈特福到俄亥俄州鮑林格林（非常長程的旅行）去出席這首曲子的首演音樂會。
