She has performed across the globe, with leading ensembles throughout the US, Europe, Asia, and South America, and she is sought after as much as a conductor of opera as in symphonic repertoire. She has been a champion of new music of all kinds, and of the work of composers of Asian descent in particular: her 2012 debut album for the Naxos label, conducting the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in music by Chinese composers, was a landmark in this field. As Music Director of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra since 2011, Maestro Kuan has nurtured musical excellence in core classics while at the same time boldly diversifying the repertoire. She has established the HSO as a vibrant nexus for imaginative collaborations across the arts, workin...

Between the movements of Holst's work choral pieces will illuminate a glorious journey through the heavens. Timothy Takach's Helios reflects on the Greek gods for which the planets are named. Jonathan Dove's Seek Him that Maketh the Seven Stars evokes awe for the divine maker of the stars. Robert Schumann's romantic An die Sterne longs for peace among the stars. Wie schön leuchtet die Morgenstern by Elliott Gyger for adult and children's choirs is a virtuosic hymn to joy and the sweetness of love, identifying Jesus as the "morning star" in a mystical wedding song. Also on the program is a newly commissioned work Starsby Patricia Van Ness on Sara Teasdale's poem of the same title. Music will take us beyond our small blue planet to the sublime expanse outside the limitations of our ken. Consider our unique place in the enormous solar system, embrace the unknown, and celebrate how precious and irreplaceable our lives are.
