The Alan Chan Jazz Orchestra is a Los Angeles-based big band that is created by genre-shaking composer/conductor Dr. Alan Chan in 2011.
Alan's music often takes inspiration from his life as a resident in various parts of the world and raises awareness of current issues such as environmental protection. His works can be heard in an array of venues serving Classical (Taiwan National Concert Hall), experimental (the Stone, NYC) and jazz (Typhoon Restaurant at Santa Monica Airport), as well as conferences/festivals such as International Jazz Festival Enschede and PASIC.
Alan is the recipient of the 2011 ArtEZ Jazz Composition Contest in the Netherlands, as well as awards and fellowships from ASCAP, Percussive Arts Society and Ucross Foundation, among others. His band has received fundings from American Composers Forum, New Music USA, as well as music lovers like you!
Members of the orchestra perform with Los Angeles' most premier ensembles including major motion picture and television shows, as well as Grammy Award-winning albums.
Tensions evident in the recent European Union-China virtual summit reflect the increasing skepticism in Europe toward China and the worries over Ukraine and economic ties as well as human rights and environmental issues.
