Keri McCarthy received 2008 GAP Award funding to commission and perform new works for oboe and piano by Southeast Asian composers. She has established herself as a leading oboe soloist and promoter of new music and recently taught at Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand, and has studied the music of Asian cultures. Four internationally-recognized composers will be featured in this new recital program: Dr. Weerachat Premananda (Thailand); Nguyen Phuc Linh (Vietnam); Yii Kah Hoh (Malaysia); and Tony Prabowo (Indonesia). Completed works resulting from this project will be performed in a series of concerts across Washington State and Southeast Asia.
