A Thousand Years of Good Prayers Premiere!


The Green Bay Commission Club is proud to announce the world premiere of Zhou Tian's A Thousand Years of Good Prayers a fabulous success!   Our piece, A Thousand Years of Good Prayers is lovely, beautiful and indeed, a very moving prayer of sound. Congratulations to Zhou Tian  for bringing our first commission to fruition with this remarkable poem.

We, the club were honored to spend time with Zhou Tian at our annual Balcony Bash on Friday night.  Zhou praised the work of the club and enthusiastically embraced our energy for creating new works of music.  Zhou commented that it is rare for commissioning clubs to commission new works for a full orchestra.  Could this be our hallmark?  Zhou Tian now joins our honor roll of composers and we are delighted that our elected composer brought such a beautiful work to Green Bay. Zhou has promised to keep in touch with the club and we certainly look forward to watching his star rise.  Thank you again Zhou, we'll see you in the spring!
