Turning Point Ensemble (Vancouver)  
The Turning Point Ensemble is a large chamber ensemble (16 instrumentalists and conductor) recognized for its outstanding musicianship. Founded in 2002 by its musician members, Turning Point has a mandate to increase the understanding and appreciation of music composed during the past hundred years, the ensemble has built a strong reputation for linking seminal 20th century repertoire to contemporary works through thoughtful programming and innovative presentations. Uniquely and flexibly sized between a small chamber ensemble and a symphonic orchestra, Turning Point Ensemble presentations offer a symphonic palette with a chamber music sensibility. Turning Point Ensemble has released four CDs with critical acclaim, including the nomination for Best Classical Recording at the Western Canadian Music Award. The ensemble has toured across Canada twice, most recently in the fall of 2015 with a program of Canadian women composers. In addition, TPE has toured within British Columbia, most recently in 2015 spring, and has been invited to perform in prestigious festivals and series including the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, New Music Concerts Toronto, ecm+ Montreal, groundswell Winnipeg, New Music Edmonton, MusicFest Vancouver, Vancouver International Jazz Festival (upcoming), and the Modulus Festival.

Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra (Taiwan)
The Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra (gCO) was founded in 2000 by artistic director and conductor Chih-Sheng Chen. A strong musical force in Taiwan, it represents a new generation of Chinese orchestral music. The gCO breathes new life into an art form that holds ancient roots, and devotes itself to promoting Chinese music on the world stage. The gCO offers a full season of approximately thirty concerts a year at the prestigious National Concert Hall in Taiwan, presenting both the full orchestra of over one hundred musicians and smaller chamber ensembles throughout the year. The orchestra has presented large-scale interdisciplinary projects, combining theatre and multimedia with orchestral music. Its international appearances include multiple European (including the 2007 Flying Circus Festival in Germany), South Asian and China tours (including 2008 Hong Kong International Chinese Music Festival), and three Canadian tours (including 2010 & 2015 Edmonton Chinese Music Festival, 2014 Sound of Dragon Music Festival, and 2015 Vancouver Jazz Festival). In addition, the gCO presents over 60 educational performances every year, introducing thousands of young audience to Chinese music in every city in Taiwan, including small communities off the main island. The gCO has released three CDs and one DVD.
