Programme Note:
Written for Corey Hamm and Nicole Gi Lim – PEP, the intent of my work is to honour Mr. Jon Lim Chung Yee who graciously shared his life story with me reflecting on the trials and tribulations he endured as an immigrant to Canada in 1956 and subsequently the success he achieved. Mei Li de Hua, which means Beautiful Flower is the Chinese name Mr. Yee bestowed on me stating I brought great chi and energy into his home. Ch'i literally means "air" or "breath". As a concept it refers to the energy flow or life force that is said to pervade all things. Needless to say I was humbled and honoured.

Premiere Information:
