2020 TAIWANfest Artist Talk - Ken Hsieh

WHAT’S IN THE HEAD AND HEART OF A CONDUCTOR?

KEN HSIEH, VANCOUVER METROPOLITAN ORCHESTRA FOUNDER

 

A frequent collaborator of TAIWANfest, what does music mean to Taiwanese-Canadian conductor Ken Hsieh? How does a conductor lead the orchestra to come together to masterfully emanate the beauty of music, and how did meeting a young indigenous orchestra in Taiwan impact him? Get a glimpse into the mind of award-winning conductor Ken Hsieh as he spells out the language of music for us.

A top world-renowned conductor who has performed in top venues around the world, Ken Hsieh is the Music Director of the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra and has led the annual TAIWANfest Opening Concerts in Toronto for several years. Providing insights into the mind of a conductor, he eloquently elaborates the dynamic of an orchestral performance, equating it to the works of a chef following through their recipe.
