Chinese New Year with Qingdao Symphony Orchestra

On January 26, 2009 at 8:00pm, in celebration of the Chinese New Year, the New York Choral Society will perform with the Qingdao Symphony, conducted by long time friend of the NYCS, Yongyan Hu, in Carnegie Hall. The program, half Chinese and half American, will include the world premiere of an oboe concerto to be played by the brilliant 25 year-old Principal Oboist of the New York Philharmonic, Liang Wang, and Leonard Bernstein’s symphonic suite from West Side Story.

I read it here.

Hmmm. I would think they’d tell us who the composer of the new oboe concerto is. Call me crazy.


  1. Hi Patty,

    I found this: “The concert will feature Liang Wang, brilliant 25-year-old Principal Oboe of the New York Philharmonic, performing the New York premiere of the oboe concerto Extase by Chinese composer Chen Qigang.” at this url: http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/press-release/renowned-qingdao-symphony-orchestra-to-join-the-new-york-choral-society-for-chinese-new-year-concert-single-performance-at-carnegie-hall-january-26-83146.php

  2. Ah, thanks! I was simply too lazy to do any research on it … I’m glad you aren’t the sloth that I am! 😎
