Under the guidance of SCO Music Director and Composer-in-Residence, the workshop offers an exposure to a range of compositional approaches for Chinese instruments, and provides an intensive practicum with the world class orchestra. Participants will be enabled to synergize their artistic influences, and express themselves unbounded by conventions and stylistic parameters.
