The Prince George Symphony Orchestra and its new director Michael Hall recently programmed and performed my triptych for chamber orchestra “Three Musings” in their April 14 concert. The following review came out on the Prince George Citizen regarding the performance:
“The concert opened with a short suite of very accessible, contemporary pieces entitled Three Musings by prodigious Canadian composer Roydon Tse. Even though its first position on the program felt somewhat like a warm-up stretch, I was immediately impressed by the delicacy and elegance with which the orchestra handled Tse’s almost Mozartian orchestral transparency. Already in the first five minutes of the program I had one eyebrow raised. Something sounded and looked different about the PGSO.”
In other news, the performance recording of my new choral work, “The Stream” is now available for listening on Soundcloud! It was recently premiered on April 14 by the Central Bucks West Choir in Toronto’s beautiful Metropolitan United Church, under the direction of Dr. Joseph Ohrt.
