Lee-hom Wang Talks to CNN about Conductorial Debut

Lee-hom Wang Talks to CNN about Conductorial Debut

Singer-songwriter Lee-hom Wang was interviewed recently by CNN about his upcoming conductorial debut of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HKPO), reported.

The American-born Chinese music talent, who has made his mark in the Chinese mando-pop music scene over the past decade, now plans to show off his abilities in classical music. He will conduct the HKPO in Hong Kong Cultural Centre from December 22 to 24.

In his interview with CNN's "Talk Asia" program, also a third such interview in three years by CNN, the singer said that his collaboration with the HKPO is an experience he holds dear, and he will try his best despite the tension he's feeling.

Ahead of his first-ever experience in the role, he says a conductor has to convey to the listeners his own interpretation of the music, just as a producer does for an album or a director for a movie.

He will also introduce to the audience a classical piece "Sui Bu" (or "Tiny Steps")by Huang Ruo, a new-generation mainland classical musician.

The tickets for the three concerts were already sold out in two days, thanks to Lee-hom Wang's unfading popularity.
