American violinist pushing musical boundaries in China
Can classical musicians trained in the United States become immersed in the eco-landscape of music across the Pacific in China? And how do their experiences of the two countries and cultures shape their musical expression?
Shawn Moore, a violinist originally from Chicago, may have the answer. Having lived in China for a decade, he has performed in many different concert settings alongside big names like Tan Dun. When he is not performing on the stage, he promotes exchanges between the two countries through education.
