Composing Across A Cultural Divide: Introducing Wang Yi
During the summer of 2015, I had the privilege of engaging in a cultural exchange to Qing Dao University (QDU) in China. Qing Dao is the beautiful port city that hosted the sailing competitions during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Wang Yi had just graduated with a Master of Music in composition from Missouri State University (MSU), where I first met her in 2013, and had now moved back to Qing Dao, her hometown. After my performance and master class, I was free to explore her city, and we began this conversation about her plans as a composer.
