Hainu Tan, (ASCAP)
Works in Member Catalog: 1

Hainu Tan's musical style emanating from the interstices of eastern and western cultures that creates an irresistible and engrossing global conversation. Critically acclaimed for a “descriptive and highly innovative” musical voice by the Portland Press Herald, Tan’s musical canon includes the artful and imaginative melding of xylophone, vibraphone, marimba, and cymbals in her acclaimed “Hunting Fireflies”; flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano in the entrancing “Sound of Wind”; trumpet and trombone in the inspirational “Ballade pour L'Agneau”; orchestral work in the monumental and spectacular “Rhapsody in Red” from her extensive list of compositions, which may well soon be lauded as contemporary classics. Her works included herein merits not just listeners’ attention but their immersion into Tan’s unique musical milieu, for an experience praised by The American Prize as “virtuosic.” She studied under professor Samuel Adler of The Juilliard School of Music at the Freie Universität Berlin, earned a Master of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing.

Prize-winning composer and classical pianist with over twenty-seven years of training and performance experience. Exceptional academic performer with first class grade point averages at leading international music institutions and qualifications to teach in a wide range of composition skills. Accomplished musician with expertise in traditional Chinese instrumentation and culture and several years of teaching from graduate level musicologists to novice pianists. Produces ambitious and innovative work that wins awards at international level and demonstrates her commitment to develop further in the discipline.

Hainu Tan has received awards and honors from many organizations, including being the only Asian-born composer has been selected as a finalist for the 2014 American Prize in Composition—Chamber Music—Professional Division, the only Asian-born composer to be honored in the 2013 American Prize in Composition—Chamber Music—Professional Division, the first Chinese-born composer to be sole winner of the annual Bowdoin International Music Festival Composition Competition, and the only winner from mainland China in a field of 142 at the inaugural San Francisco International Center for the Arts Illuminations and Reflections competition for 21st Century Composition.

She has over 20 years of music teaching experience which includes composition, piano performance, music theory and analysis, ear training and solfège, harmony and counterpoint, instrumentation and orchestration, musical style analysis, music history and literature, world and folk music.

Hainu Tan's dream is to discover her own identity in the universe according to God's original specific purpose, respond in obedience to God's unique calling and plan for her life, and let the Lord Jesus Christ's love and light shine forth throughout the whole world. Through her music, she hopes to convey the way, truth, life, resurrection, faith, peace, blessings, and healing to the poor and the middle class and the rich, the hungry and the well-fed, children and adults, the elderly and youth, the weak and the strong, the sick and the healthy, the physically disabled and abled, the mentally ill and well, those who are alone and those in a community, the desperate and the hopeful, the brokenhearted and the joyful, the marginalized and the recognized, the unemployed and the promoted, the homeless and people with safe and happy homes, the past and present and future generations, who are from all around the world.

“We love because God first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 New International Version) Ms. Tan's greatest desire is the peaceful coexistence of people all over the world. She hopes in the future human society will gradually be integrated into one family: everyone keeps a pure heart to truly understand, care, and help one another and build each other up by pursuing kindness, goodness, gentleness, justice, righteousness, holiness, hope, love, joy, peace, patience, faithfulness, and self-control.
