Quick Overview

"Jing Diao" in Chinese means Beijing Opera tune. To celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Seattle Symphony with Gerry, I wrote my Symphony No. 3 - My Musical Journey to "America" in 2004, with three movements entitled: I. The Dragon Culture; II. The Melting Pot; III. Dreaming. To honor Gerry's enormous contribution to the multicultural society during his tenure with the Symphony, I would like to use the energetic "Jing Diao" to symbolize the high spirit in the meeting of East and West. Gerry's vision and leadership in American new music development brings our creative arts to the whole new world!
