In Sunday’s (4/18) Plain Dealer (Cleveland), Donald Rosenberg reports, “Fang Man, a Chinese composer who receives commissions from many international artists and ensembles, has been appointed composer-in-residence at the Baldwin-Wallace College Conservatory of Music. Nicknamed Mandy, she will succeed Loris Chobanian, who is retiring after 40 years at B-W. … The conservatory will celebrate its new composer by devoting its biennial Focus Festival of Contemporary Music to her October 29 to 31. … Her works have been commissioned by such organizations as Orchestre National de Lorraine under Jacques Mercier and the Los Angeles Philharmonic led by Esa-Pekka Salonen. She has been commissioned this year for pieces for the Dolce Suono Ensemble Mahler-Schoenberg Project 2010 (Philadelphia); Ensemble Integrales for 2010 festivals in Dresden and Hamburg, Germany; Asian Young Composers for Canadian Borealis String Quartet (Taiwan); and Interlochen Academy Symphony Orchestra (Michigan). She is also collaborating on a music and video project with Kasumi, a faculty member at the Cleveland Institute of Art.”
