On July 17th, the BC Chinese Music Ensemble will present a unique concert titled “Breaking Barriers” at the Surrey Centre Stage. “Breaking Barriers” signifies not only the breaking of form, general structure and concept of music, but also the boundary of cultures. The project is a balanced program of traditional and contemporary works that refers to the common experiences of musicians and audiences of changing cultures, changing restrictions, and re-building in another location or situation. The mix of cultural traditions and influences is unique to this program. Featured in the program are several new works and premieres, including Zhimin Yu’s The Other Side of Mountain, Mark Armanini’s “Heartland”, Bruce Bai’s “The Life of Mr. Zhang” (world premiere), and Rita Ueda “Hummingbird in Winter”.
