“As an immigrant, it is always a joy to share the diversity of the world’s music with our audience. Beatles guitarist George Harrison collaborated closely with Ravi Shankar, and called him ‘the godfather of world music.’ I have always admired strong women, like Scheherazade in Rimsky-Korsakov’s masterpiece. Her bravery and 1,001 tales changed her life and the lives of all those around her. This music is dramatic, evocative, thrilling and wistful – qualities that speak to me in a very personal way.” – Carolyn Kuan
