The music I played at the White House
I was deeply honored to have been invited to perform at the White House recently. The two pieces I played were, one, Maurice Ravel’s “Ma mere l’Oye” (Mother Goose) for four hands, the other, a Chinese piece called “My Motherland”. I selected this song because it has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. It was selected for no other reason but for the beauty of its melody.
I am, first and foremost, an artist. As such, I play music to bring people together.
America and China are my two homes. I am most grateful to the United States for providing me with such wonderful opportunities, both in my musical studies and for furthering my career. I couldn’t be who I am today without those two countries.
My mission is to bridge cultures together through the beauty and inspiration of music.
