Joined by accomplished composers—the Pulitzer Prize-winning Zhou Long, and the award-winning Chen Yi—Tan Dun will lead a performance and discussion that weaves together a narrative of the artists’ musical journeys from China to America. The evening will also pay tribute to composer Chou Wen-chung, who invited the composers to America and Columbia University, with special performances by guest artists.

Tan Dun, the conceptual and multifaceted composer/conductor, is the winner of the GRAMMY Award, Academy Award, and Grawemeyer Award for classical composition.
