Chester Biscardi goes to China

My friend Chester Biscardi says he wishes he had something gay to tell me about his recent trip to China in May. But two weeks of performances of your music on the other side of the planet is nothing to apologize for.

He was featured composer at the Beijing Modern Music Festival and from the look of the photos, he was treated very well.  He kept a detailed journal of the experience and the folks at Sarah Lawrence College, where Chet teaches, prepared a fine summary.  Click on the photos here for links to their page.

In other Biscardi news, finishing touches are going into a Koussevtizky/Library of Congress commission for voice and 10 instruments, to be premiered next spring and a new full-length CD on Naxos is also scheduled for release next year.
