Composer and Chinese flutist Yu-Hsin Chang is currently a doctoral student in music composition and theory at UC Davis. She received her previous degrees (MFA, BFA) from Taiwan, and her works include solo, chamber, orchestral pieces for both Western and Chinese music instruments, and have been performed by soprano Tony Arnold, the Empyrean Ensemble, the Splinter Reeds, the SŌ Percussion, the Daedalus Quartet, the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, the Chai Found Music Workshop, and the Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra. Chang’s music reflects contemplative atmosphere with sparkling music timbre and pulses, and the bi-musicality of Western and Chinese music traditions. Recently she studied under the direction of Pablo Ortiz. Her previous composition mentors include Kurt Rohde, Sam Nichols and Chin-Yu Lin.
