The Violin Channel recently caught up with Jindong Cai, Director of the China Now Music Festival.
This December will see the third edition of US-China Music Institute of Bard College Conservatory of Music’s China Now Music Festival.
The Chinese Music Development Initiative is a partnership between the US-China Music Institute of the Bard College Conservatory of Music, and the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China.
Of course, the annual China Now Music Festival shares this mission, as we have been commissioning new orchestral works every year.
But one difference is that, in China, there are more and more young people listening to classical music.
