Alexina Louie's "Bringing The Tiger Down From The Mountain" will be performed at the National Arts Centre Orchestra’s major seven-city tour of China in October 2013.

"...“I had to figure out my own voice. That’s a very hard thing to do for any composer.” Louie, who had played the piano since she was a child, didn’t give up music altogether. Instead, she turned to playing a Chinese instrument, and that was her salvation. “I decided my own voice had to come from within myself. That is why I started looking at my Chinese heritage.”...."
