Ignace Jang is the concertmaster of Honolulu symphony orchestra. We talk about his background, profession and the string program he will be running this coming July. We’ll also talk about the influence of immigration on music and about Hawaii !
Announcement for the Aussie listeners: if you’re around Sydney on the 10th, 11th and 12th of July 2015, come and say hi at the Bleu Blanc Rouge French festival! More information will be coming on my Facebook (French Your Way) – but it seems like my site will be located near the kid’s corner and the pétanque playing area.
Finally, I’m curious: where are you listening to me from ? Please let me know by leaving a message in the comment section!
