One of my dreams ever since I began to compose was to have an orchestra of international reputation perform my works, and that dream of mine is slowly becoming a reality, thanks to very supportive family, friends, mentors, and the education I received at UBC. My piece “Three Musings – A triptych for chamber orchestra” will be read by none other than the world renowned Toronto Symphony Orchestra in late February as part of the 2013 New Creations Festival at Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto, Canada. It was selected by TSO composer affiliate Kevin Lau from submissions across Canada and will be conducted and rehearsed by TSO composer advisor and composition professor Gary Kulesha on Feb 26th or 28th (TBA).
The piece was a revision from the previous suite for chamber orchestra, “Three Musings and a Dance”, which was read by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in 2011 and won the inaugural Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orchestra’s National Student composers competition in 2010. Information for the original suite can be found here along with sample tracks.
