*New Conductor Needed

After 10 years of contributing all her time, effort and talent to developing East Meets West Music Arts programs, music director, Dr. Fengshi Yang will take a break from presenting major concerts beginning in 2004 in order to focus on her writing through which she will continue her mission of bridging East and West. However, she will still spend part time managing the EMW's office, the youth program, and will assist anyone who wishes to conduct EMW's concerts.

We are now seeking a qualified person who has talent in both conducting and organizing concerts, and has passion for working with the communities, and is willing to share the vision of Dr. Fengshi Yang -- that is bridging East and West through music arts, to continue presenting EMW's concerts to our longtime audience. Volunteers for coordinating and preparing our concert events are also needed.

*Benefactors Needed

For the past 10 years, EMW has presented numerous high quality concerts for our communities despite its very limited financial resources. Thanks to our many volunteer staff and musicians including our music director whose contributions have made our programs possible. But, for the longer run, in order to continue our concert programs in the future, we will need to find substantial financial benefactors who are willing to support the EMW’s mission to bridge East and West through music arts.

We’d love to hear from anyone who is interested in above issues, and please feel free to contact us.

Thank you!
