Chikako Morishita – DRK Residency

IMG_1651Chikako Morishita recently spent two weeks at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore as part of her residency at the Dian Red Kenchil International Young Composers Residency. The residency focused on cultural diversity as ten young composers were gathered from throughout the world to work with mentors Chaya Czernowin, Peter Edwards, and Steven Takasugi. As part of the residency, Chikako’s new work, duo for five players (2013), was premiered by Ensemble Ascolta, ensemble-in-residence, and conducted by Jason Lai along with pieces by fellow participants on the 24th of May.
