I had the wonderful experience of performing with the Silk Bamboo and Maple Festival Orchestra in Vancouver on May 21, 2017 in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. We played contemporary Canadian works for Chinese instrumental ensembles. It was a challenging and amazing experience, under the leadership of Dr. Chih-Sheng Chen (Taiwan). It was great to collaborate with these talented musicians and composers.
