Dr. Chih-Sheng Chen is the Centre for Music Innovations’ Artistic Advisor. I had first met him in 2008 and he has become a good friend and Chinese music mentor. In this interview, you will learn about his background, how the Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra started, and the direction Dr. Chen envisions for Chinese orchestral music.
CMI is working in partnership with Dr. Chen to create a Chinese orchestral music database that will allow thousands of high quality videos to be accessible (with titles, composers, and program notes) to English readers. We are excited to bring this amazing music to the world.
