Chou Wen-chung Centennial Concert

This centennial event celebrates the life of pioneering composer Chou Wen-chung: the first Chinese-born American composer to achieve international acclaim. His unique style – subtly expressive and yet always ‘of the moment’ – brought together Chinese traditional music and Western modernism in a reciprocal symbiosis.

Chou taught for decades at Columbia University, heading its composition program. His Center for US-China Arts Exchange brought young Chinese composers to the United States for graduate study in the 1980s, in the febrile times that followed Mao’s death.

A short, informal conversation between Chou’s sons and musical associates will follow the intermission.

Sponsored by Spiralis Music Trust in cooperation with Columbia University Department of Music.
