As part of our China in New York festival, from Sunday, January 22 to Sunday, January 29, WQXR Host David Garland interviews a different Chinese-born musician, composer or conductor who has lived in the United States and has become prominent to New York City audiences.
At 27, bass-baritone Shenyang is a powerful voice with an enormous classical music record collection.
In the spring of 2007, after winning the Cardiff Competition, he took a master class with Renee Fleming at the Shanghai Conservatory. And well, as they say, the rest is history.
He now resides in New York City, and is singing with the Metropolitan Opera.
