In this video, I'm performing for the first time in the People's Republic of China with the Sichuan Symphony Orchestra in Chengdu. Well, I'm writing a personal note here because this trip was very personal for me. Being Chinese-Canadian/American, I've never really spent any time in China, but yet I still feel so culturally Chinese. I've always felt a sense of not fitting in, but I had stopped searching for that feeling a while ago. My grandparents were born in China, but I am currently the third generation in my family to be born outside of China. It was, even more, moving as I was performing a concerto written by a Chinese composer and I can't explain why but it just all made sense. I learned Western technique and Western music and brought all of that to China.

Being a hybrid of Chinese background but yet also being born and raised in North America and spending time in Europe, I really feel like I can have an understanding of both cultures. Funny enough, when I was walking in China, I didn't feel like a foreigner at all. I can speak some very bad Mandarin Chinese, but they all treated me as if I was one of them...

Well, here's a clip, and the video isn't the best, but I hope you can enjoy this concert! I'm glad that we have a recording of it!

Always thank you for watching :)
