"Music is the social act of communication among people, a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is."
The 21st Century has witnessed an unprecedented breakdown of communication as international deadlock prevails. Our mission fulfills the desire for leadership that will move the world to a brighter future with a positive vision of innovation through collaboration.
By celebrating culture, PROJECT: 音 SOUND 음 transforms musicians and listeners into cultural ambassadors, empowering them to become leaders in the intercultural conversation that alone can plow through the deadlock, reopening vital communication channels via a language of inclusion, connecting us at the most intimate level. Together, the people of PROJECT: 音 SOUND 음 become catalysts for a more compassionate world.
At the core of the project is Sonic Impact, a fifteen-member chamber ensemble, comprised of musicians from China (including Taiwan and Hong Kong), the United States, Korea, and Japan. By honoring the musical past of each country and forging new music worthy of the internationalism of the 21st Century, the performers will challenge audiences in each country to lead a fresh conversation.
