In keeping with Executive Director Stanny Shiu’s international vision, in 2019 BIMA will move to Changshu China, to the new and beautiful United World College campus, near Shanghai.
I am very excited by the new changes, the unbelievably great concert halls, and the incredible professors and performers.
In addition to the legendary and amazing professors we have assembled from China, Hong-Kong and Singapore, we have returning BIMA artists from the 2017/18 San Diego festivals. This year in strings we introduce world renowned violin professors; violinists Nora Chastain from Berlin and Kyung-Sun Lee from Seoul, the multi-faceted cellist Francis Gouton from France and Koreas finest viola teacher Sang Jin Kim.
I would like to add that I am personally so very happy to be in the company of musicians I greatly admire such as Xidi Shen, Shao Wu Wang and Michael Ma.

Welcome to the next chapter of BIMA in China. 2019.
