Piano and Erhu Project (PEP), an exciting cross-cultural project in which Corey and Nicole have over thirty (and counting!) composers from Canada and China writing new works for erhu and piano. The new works will be performed by Nicole and Corey in a series of concerts stretching into 2014 when the works will be recorded, and then toured in Canada and China.
Among the composers writing erhu and piano works for Nicole and Corey right now are Michael Park, James Harley, Brian Cherney, Hope Lee, David Eagle, Douglas Finch, Daniel Marshall, Elizabeth Raum, Dai Fujikura, Alexis Renault, John Oliver, Scott Godin, Stephen Chatman, Keith Hamel, Bob Pritchard, Jordan Nobles, Jocelyn Morlock, Gabriel Dharmoo, Paul Steenhuisen, Marc Mellits, Remy Siu, Dorothy Chang, Edward Top, Chris Gainey, Dubravko Pajalic, Jared Miller, Martin Ritter, Alyssa Aska, Alfredo, Santa Ana, Francois Houle, Owen Underhill, Vivian Fung, Hope Lee, Jian Qiang Xu, Yuan Qing Li, Joshua Chan, Si Ang Chen, I Yu Wang, Laura Pettigrew, Laurie Radford, Chan Kan Nin, Alice Ho, Emily Doolittle, with more to come!
