Today was the kick-off of the first UMKC 2013 Conservatory Connections at the Nelson-Atkins Museum.  Four composers premiered new works for guzheng (Chinese zither) either solo or accompanied.  Among the featured works was my solo composition for zheng, “I Walk Alone”.  The talented Zhou Jing (composer/zheng player) premiered the works with such flare and grace, captivating the audience. 

Presented by Adam Johnson, Mara Gibson, and Chen Yi, the event was amazing.  Then, the following grubdown was also the bomb!!!
