The Silences Inside Me
Vocalist Jenny Duck-Chong’s connection/disconnection to her Chinese roots is the creative impetus for a new art song that explores how interaction with grandparents, family heirlooms, and stories influence our connection to ancestry. This new work will be premiered by leading contemporary vocal ensemble Halycon in Sydney in 2023. We offer exclusive streaming or inperson prec-oncert experience for donors in addition to regular updates in our private Facebook group.
Still shimmering will be a glittering new work for a 10-piece mixed ensemble of Western and Chinese instruments for Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra, one of Taiwan’s leading ensembles. This is Corrina’s second work for Little Giant and it will premiere in October 2023 at the National Concert Hall, Taipei. It explores transformational states of water inspired by ideas from science and spirituality in four connected moments: 1) Frozen yet liquid, 2) Crystalline gel, 3) A nucleus floats in watery cytoplasm, 4) Energised through love. Donors get an exclusive recording of this work, can watch a rehearsal via streaming, and gain insights into composing process via posting in a private Facebook group.
