Congratulations to one of our orchestra’s members, Felix Yeung, for being accepted into the Shanghai Conservatory of Music’s (上海音乐学院) 2014 summer program in Chinese traditional music. Felix is one of ten candidates from around the world who was accepted as advanced-class scholarship students. The program’s focus this year will be on three traditional instruments: pipa, liuqin, and yangqin. Felix is TCO’s liuqin player, and we are very happy that he has received this opportunity to learn from some of the best Chinese musicians in the world.
We know Felix will bring back what he has learned to Canada and continue to play a part in the promotion of traditional Chinese music here in Canada. Bon voyage, Felix!
