Conrad Tao Commissioned for JFK Anniversary

- The Americas

Conrad Tao has been commissioned by the Dallas Symphony and Jaap van Zweden to write the official piece to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of JFK’s assassination.  Quite an honour for someone whose (Chinese) parents were not even born at the time, but the decision was unanimous after Conrad’s mesmerizing success there last May.  Conrad will be visiting the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas (www.jfk.org) in November to start the process.
