The Pan Pacific Ensemble denounces violence against Asian and Asian-American people. Violence against others is divisive and unacceptable. We, the Pan Pacific Ensemble, will continue to uphold our creative mission to build a bridge between cultures through music. We support the Asian community and stand by its people. If you are interested in learning how to donate or more about what is being done to fight violence against communities, visit this link for resources.
The Pan Pacific Ensemble are striving to build a bridge between China, Southeast Asia, and the Americas by introducing audiences to wind quintets from these regions. The resulting programs offer an engaging mix of tradition and modernity that reflect on the shared global experience of music.
