About The Event

What does it mean to grow and evolve, without forgetting one’s roots? For those of us who live close to where we were born, or for those of us who have migrated, the Spectrum composers tells stories of home, identity, and ultimately, the common experiences that unite us as human, no matter where we live.

Spectrum composers create a distinctly Canadian repertoire for traditional Chinese instruments performed by:

Patty Chan, Concertmaster of the Toronto Chinese Orchestra, on Erhu (Chinese fiddle)

Di Zhang on the Yangqin (Chinese Dulcimer)

Ziwen Qin on the Gu Zheng (Chinese Harp)

The concert will be preceeded by a pre-show panel discussion at 7:30pm about home and identity as it relates to music, featuring:

Patty Chan, performer

Roydon Tse, composer

Shelley Zhang, ethnomusicologist

Aziza Mohammed, host of Salon West
