The CFAS Young Artists Ensemble was created in 2009 to give developing young artists the opportunity to perform and showcase their talent in a public setting. The ensemble is comprised of placement winners from the CFAS-sponsored Music Festival in Honor of Confucius and includes talented musicians on both Chinese and Western instruments. Their repertoire includes lively Chinese folk songs, Chinese classical music, contemporary Chinese music from the Barbara Tiao Composition Competition, as well as Western classical pieces.
Members of the ensemble have performed at community events including the Evanston Ethnic Arts Festival, the Chinatown Summer Concert Series, and at community centers such as Grayslake library and TECO Chinese Cultural Center in Westmont. In 2009, a few ensemble members were featured on WFMT’s Introductions. Excerpts of their show were featured on WFMT’s Best of Introductions CD, an annual compilation of the top performances in the year.
