The hospitality from the faculty and students at the Tianjin Conservatory of Music in China was tremendous. Our concert (with So Young Yoon, piano) went well and I enjoyed teaching the saxophone students in several master classes, including saxophone quartets and jazz students. Most striking about my trip to China in general was the diversity of the architecture in Tianjin City. Having spent a lot of time in Korea it was also interesting to contrast the two Asian cultures. I look forward to return visits!
