A Special Performance by Nathan Wang
Internationally acclaimed composer, director, and pianist Nathan Wang will perform on Sunday, Dec, 10, 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m., in conjunction with the Chinese American Museum’s two-day symposium at the Pico House, El Pueblo de Los Angeles. Entitled Never Forget: 1871, the composition is a musical re-telling of the story of the Chinese Massacre of 1871, which combines an ensemble of western and Chinese instruments accompanying voices in this premiere all Chinese-American cast.
Born in Los Angeles, Wang began playing the piano at age three. He is a multiple award-winner with two Emmy awards and this year was a recipient of CAM’s Historymakers award. He has composed music for producers on four continents, among them Jackie Chan and Steven Spielberg.
