The Honorable Memory, Singapore

Our glorious accomplishments will stay with us eternally.

 
Oh, Singapore! I could always recollect the touching moments and thrilling excitements!!!
At the age of eight, I participated in the Sino-Japanese Junior Composition Competition held by YAMAHA. I was lucky enough to be in the finals and had several concert tours in Taiwan. What’s more, fortunately, I was selected as the representative of Taiwan and headed to Singapore to participate in the first Asian Oceanic Junior Original Concert, performing our own originals with representatives of the other six countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, and Australia.

Solo Traveler: A visit of Bosendorfer, Vienna, Austria.

I came to Vienna just to pick my destined piano.

 
This is my second visit to Vienna. Fleeting time left only blur memories of my first visit of Vienna.
That year I was 15, performing with the NTSO International Youth Orchestra together.
At that time, the itinerary was very busy. We had to rush everything like the rehearsal, performance, and I even had to do sightseeing with my heavy backpack and oboe. However, this time I came to Vienna for one simple reason: To visit the famous Bosendorfer factory and to pick my destined piano at the exhibition.

The Interview with the Artistic Talent Scout of Cirque Du Soleil

An amazing afternoon visiting the international headquarter and interviewing the artistic talent scout, Claude Vendette!

 
One day, I all of the sudden had an idea…Since I interview people for the content of my blog, why not interviewing the talent scout of Cirque Du Soleil ? Therefore, I wrote an email to them. A few days after, Cirque Du Soleil responded me that… usually they don’t accept personal media (like bloggers) to interview them. However, since I am the selected performer, so they accepted my request and invited me to the interview!!

Despite the long, arduous flight they endured to participate in this spectacular event, they managed to deliver an incredible performance.
Together, we played Canadian Contemporary from Jazz Composer Jash Rager, Min Rager’s tunes, a few of my songs, my arrangement of Mandarin Pop songs, and Chick Corea’s tunes.

I am thrilled to be invited to play at the Taichung Jazz Festival this Friday, October 13th, with my fellow Canadian musician friends, Jazz Talk from Montreal! The Taichung Jazz Festival has been a prominent festival in my hometown for the past eight years. Not only has being in my hometown been a great experience for me at this point in my career, the ability to bring all that I have learned from my previous education in Canada to my hometown is rewarding! It feels like I am able to convey my musical growth from the western country back to where it all began,

VIDEO: “Does Tradition Exist in the 21st Century” At RockWood Music Hall In New York City

As beautiful as tradition is, is it holding us back from breaking free into our creative world?

I performed “Does Tradition Exist in the 21st Century to wrap up my New York performance at Rockwood Music Hall. I wrote this piece in 2005 when I started recognizing how technology started influencing the way people lived. What fascinated me was the discrepancy between the modern and traditional way of thinking, and what important values continued on in our progressing culture and what values remained in the past.
