Is “home” a place in which you reside, or something that resides within you?  What does it mean to grow and evolve, without forgetting one’s roots? The Spectrum composers tells stories of home, identity, and ultimately, the common experiences that unite us as human, no matter where we live.


Chan Kol Nidre by Patty Chan, arr. Chelsea McBride
Doghouses by Jacob Starling
No Place Like Home by Chelsea McBride
Northeast Lakota Lullaby, traditional, adapted by Patty Chan, arr. by Chelsea McBride
Re-cordis by Javier Vazquez
Remembering Home by Roydon Tse

Spectrum composers create a distinctly Canadian repertoire for traditional Chinese instruments performed by:

Patty Chan, Concertmaster of the Toronto Chinese Orchestra, on Erhu (Chinese fiddle)
Di Zhang on the Yangqin (Chinese Dulcimer)

Patty Chan, performer
