BMCO Presents: Zhen Chen, piano and Lin Ma, pipa
In their newly-released album, the award-winning composer Chen explores new possibilities by combining the sounds of traditional Chinese musical instruments with Western ensembles. Ma plays the pipa, a pear-shaped fretted instrument and is the protagonist in the recording who tells her life story as a new immigrant in New York.

The album's name, "On & Between," refers to the uncertain status of those in an immigrant community and calls on listeners to attach great importance to the value of ethnic and cultural diversity in the United States. -Source: Xinhua

The Brooklyn Metro Chamber Orchestra presents a concert on December 2, 2018 celebrating the ever growing Chinese community in the borough. Brooklyn's premiere classical ensemble, the BMCO, will perform contemporary and traditional music featuring two of China's young and upcoming musicians Lin Ma considered one of the world's finest pipa players and the pianist and composer Zhen Chen.

Already high on the Classical Billboard chart, Mr. Chen's "On and Between" the story in music of Chinese immigrants in New York will open the program The world premiere of this work was sold out and played to a standing ovation. Incorporating traditional instruments with a new fresh score Mr. Chen paints a vivid picture of the Chinese immigrant experience in New York. Joining Mr. Chen will be Ms Ma and members of the BMCO.
