Congratulations to CCM alumnus Gao Ping (DMA ’03), who was recently named professor of composition at the Capital Normal University in Beijing! A native of China, Gao also teaches as a guest professor at the China Conservatory of Music.
During his time at CCM, Gao studied piano and composition with James Tocco and Joel Hoffman, respectively.
In addition to his latest academic appointment, Gao also recently toured to Russia and Israel, where his new work “The Four Not-Alike” was premiered with the Forbidden City Chamber Orchestra of Beijing. This same program will be taken on tour to Spain next month.
