CCW has commissioned Nathan Wang, the Emmy Award-winning film composer in Hollywood and China cinema, to write a brand new choral piece to commemorate its 2013 international tour to China. In advance of the tour commencing this July, Wang has composed a piece specifically for the chorus between his multiple projects in both California and China. Commenting on the collaboration, Joan Gregoryk, the founder and artistic director, says “We are so honored to be working with a prolific composer like Nathan. The collaboration couldn’t be more wonderful because of his passion and understanding for young voices. He just contributed a great addition to the children’s chorus repertoire.” Written in Mandarin based on a Chinese poem by Wang Guan, the brand new song titled “Wonderful Day Out With Nature” will be part of the tour concert program for the Chinese audience.
The new commissioned piece had its World Premiere on Friday, July 12th at the CCW’s China Tour Special Send-off Concert. Read the review from China Daily USA.
