Music Director Carl St.Clair shared his thoughts about Pacific Symphony’s new Composer-in-Residence Viet Cuong: “From literally the first seconds of hearing Viet’s music, I realized that I was in the presence of a special voice, one connected in a most profound way to that special realm which offers music its beauty and meaning. Viet’s music was fresh, colorful, and captivating. Then, we met. He was just the person I began to know through this music—kind, gentle, yet with a quiet strength of belief and conviction.”
Voice of OC’s Paul Hodgins interviewed Viet Cuong and has quite a story to tell about this gifted young composer. Read the story here.
