June 2015 in Chengdu

Taking on greater diplomatic purpose, Canada-based conductor Ken Hsieh's program on June 26th, 2015 with the state-owned Sichuan Philharmonic Orchestra had a German theme.
  • Weber: Oberon Overture
  • Schubert Symphony 8 Unfinished
  • Beethoven Symphony 7
Ken Hsieh has a unique base crossing continents and countries with a strong following on several continents including:
  • Japan - where he was trained and performs regularly;
  • Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra in Vancouver is a training orchestra started by him and born and educated in Canada;
  • Taipei - where parents live; and
  • Vienna - where he studied and performed.
China is far-sighted in their introduction of the congenial musician to their domestic audience.    He will be back with them in October 2015.
