“Consolation” for People Suffering from the Pandemic 2020




Cloud Recording: Daming Li – Cello, Clara Yang – Piano

Audio Recording: Jennifer Chou – Cello, Chia Lan Lee – Piano

As a SF Bay Area Composer, I was profoundly stricken by the images I saw every day on the news of the people suffering from the pandemic all over the world during the shelter-in-place times, and I was compelled to do something positive with my music composition, one sleepless night, my inspiration was fulfilled.

    Hi Mr. Young – I am wondering if you would be willing to play for our Silicon Valley Accordion Society club in Los Altos, CA. It would be on the First Sunday of the month at 3:15 pm. Would absolutely love to hear you play. Thank you
