Don Freund in Taiwan

American composer Don Freund visits Taiwan this week. Dr Freund, a professor of composition at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, is the winner of numerous composition awards. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Dr Freund has served as composer-in-residence at the Australian National Academy of Music and lectured at Royal Conservatories in Brussels and the Hague, the Royal Academy of Music in London, the Prague Conservatory and the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.


I first met Dr Freund at the University of Memphis, when he served as chairman of the composition department, conductor of the university symphony, and director of the university's international New Music Festival.

Here are some of the events where Dr Freund will be performing and discussing music during his visit. His tour culminates in a concert in Pingtung on March 26 Friday 19:30.
