Tian Hui Ng is Music Director of the Pioneer Valley Symphony, Boston Opera Collaborative, and the Victory Players—a new music ensemble supported by the Massachusetts International Festival of the Arts. An advocate of new music, he has assisted in and premiered new works by internationally lauded composers Chaya Czernowin, Curt Cacioppo, Aaron Jay Kernis, David Sanford, and Joan Tower, among many others.

Brown, and Dark River, the arresting story of Civil Rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer in an opera that fuses Motown and Verdi.
