I SING BEIJING was founded with a mission to nurture and equip the next generation of singers with the versatile skills necessary for an increasingly globalized classical music market. The program
- Present the emerging Chinese modern
opera as a new genre in Western-style opera through the introduction of
Mandarin as a lyric language.
- Offer both U.S. and Chinese singers
trained in the Western-style operatic tradition a one-of-a-kind
opportunity to hone their craft in a new, cross-cultural environment
while applying these disciplines to this new repertoire and language.
- Introduce singers to a new audience and help them explore career possibilities beyond the opera houses in the West.
Under the artistic directorship of Hao Jiang Tian, I SING BEIJING, provides a meeting point for East and West through song.
