Tin's New Work Tops Billboard's Classical Chart

Composer Christopher Tin, whose work is primarily classical with a strong world music influence, continues to compose for films, video games, and commercials. Chris won two Grammy awards for his first album, the classical crossover “Calling All Dawns.”

The US premiere of “The Drop That Contained the Sea,” Christopher Tin’s sequel to “Calling All Dawns,” was performed at Carnegie Hall, New York, on April 13, 2014. The new work contains ten new pieces in ten languages, featuring another all-star collection of world and classical artists, including the Soweto Gospel Choir, Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, Anonymous 4, Dulce Pontes, and many more. Also featured is the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which Chris conducted at legendary Abbey Road Studios.

 

The West Coast premiere was performed by IFS grant recipient Angel City Chorale on June 13, 2014 in Los Angeles.

The CD of “The Drop That Contained the Sea” entered the Billboard Classical Music Chart at No. 1, and entered at No. 6 on the Billboard World Music Chart.

 

Pacific Opera Project presents Puccini

Los Angeles opera company and grant recipient Pacific Opera Project presented “Tosca” in September 2014, and “La Boheme” in December 2014. Both were conducted and, in “La Boheme,” accompanied by, grant recipient Stephen Karr. “Tosca” featured a twenty-two person orchestra that moved, along with the audience, from scene to scene.

Stage and Cinema wrote: “Josh Shaw and Stephen Karr have once again put together a fantastic operatic production showcasing some of the finest vocal talent available at an extremely affordable price. Under Shaw’s creative direction . . ., La Bohème has been superbly brought to life in a setting that is faithful to the original, as well as intimately and creatively wrought.”

POP will present Mozart's “Abduction from the Seraglio” in Spring 2015.
