Chen Yi, Composer in Residence

Shaped by her experience coming of age during China's Cultural Revolution, Chen Yi embodies the "edge effect": Her early influences include both Chinese traditional music and Western classical music. Chen Yi is a master of contemporary technique and a strong advocate for music’s power to connect audiences of different cultural backgrounds. The 20/21 Ensemble will take on her active and engaging chamber works, including the evocative Happy Rain on a Spring Night and the iconic Sparkle.
