Internationally acclaimed composer Dr. CHEN YI visits SUNY Fredonia in her second residency as the inaugural Sorel Visiting Artist. A native of China, Dr. Chen’s music features a vibrant interaction of the cultural references of both her youth in China and her career in the United States. She will be on campus from February 2-4, 2023 to engage the campus and community through performances of her work, panel discussions, workshops, and more.
This event features a roundtable discussion about women in music and their experiences in the musical community. The roundtable panel will include Chen Yi (Claudette Sorel Visiting Artist), Wende Persons (Managing Director, Sorel Charitable Organization), Tamara Dworetz (Visiting Faculty Conductor, SUNY Fredonia), and Fernanda Lastra (Conductor Diversity Fellow, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra). These events are made possible thanks to a generous gift from The Sorel Charitable Organization, Inc.
