The Orchestra Now
Jindong Cai conductor
The China Now Music Festival returns to the Sosnoff stage for its sixth season with a concert honoring two of the most influential composers from China working in the US today, Zhou Long and Chen Yi. Led by maestro Jindong Cai, The Orchestra Now (TŌN) will perform US premieres of major symphonic works by this legendary couple and their renowned teacher at Columbia University, Chou Wenchung. With the addition of two pieces by their young protégées Zhou Juan and Li Shaosheng, who now have major careers in China, the program links three generations of composers to highlight the generational bridge that Chen Yi and Zhou Long have built between the country of their birth and the one they now call home — a musical bridge between China and the US that is both strong and enduring.
This concert is presented by the US-China Music Institute of the Bard College Conservatory of Music, in collaboration with the Central Conservatory of Music, China, as part of the 6th annual China Now Music Festival: The Bridge of Music.
