About this Performance

The Los Angeles Times extolled the organist-composer for her “rare musicality and lovely lyrical grandeur” and “charming and irresistible compositional style.” As a soloist, Chen has performed recitals and with orchestras all over the world. As a composer, she seeks to expand traditional organ repertoire with her own works based on Asian folksongs.

This performance is generously supported by Mari L. Danihel.
