In our quest to provide more audio and video content on TheaterJones, we're beginning with a new podcast by local pianist Jonathan Tsay, called Between the Barlines. Tsay has performed recitals for international organizations, including in Taiwan and Canada, as well as for local outfits Fine Arts Chamber Players and The Cliburn, where he works with classroom outreach.
He talks more about himself and the podcast in this introduction:
For the fourth episode, Tsay chats with pianist Thomas Yu, a Canadian periodontist who won the Van Cliburn Amateur Piano Competition in 2016. They talk about the world of amateur piano competitions, great advice, performing the work of a living Canadian composer, and they play a gun game.
Yu, along with 2011 Cliburn Amateur winner Christopher Shih, performs Sunday with Tsay's outfit Ensemble75 at Caruth Auditorium on the Southern Methodist University campus. More info on that is here.
» Between the Barlines will appear twice monthly on TheaterJones.com. You can also listen to the podcast on our SoundCloud page.
