GEORGE SHAW concert, JUNE the 6th, 2009 California Institute for Chinese Performing Arts

[author: George Shaw, composer]

I've been working hard to put on a concert that will feature some of my
music, including several themes from my film scores, and doing some
improvisations. But seeing it all come together is such a thrill. Come
check it out next Saturday, I'll be conducting as well as playing
piano, percussion, and some Chinese woodwind instruments. It will be a
unique and memorable night unlike any concert I've ever been to.

Come experience a journey to the Eastern Horizon, an evening of musical
explorations and discoveries. With contemporary pieces written by
award-winning composers George Shaw and Paul Kwo, the ensemble will
lead you to an enchanting horizon where the East meets the West. Fusing
the best of both worlds with instruments and sounds (featuring erhu,
Chinese winds & percussion, flute, violin, cello, and piano), the
performance will help you discover the beauty of cultural exchange
through music.

Date: Saturday, June 6, 8PM
Location: California Institute for Chinese Performing Arts
Address: 9837 Baldwin Place, El Monte, CA 91731
