Ray Chen, connecting with audiences / WRTI

Bookmark and Share

Described by critics as "preternaturally gifted," and his music "spellbinding," violinist Ray Chen performs all over the world. He's also distinguishing himself off the concert stage with over 100 YouTube videos ranging from zany comedy to a motivational series.

Chen talked with WRTI: Philadelphia - Susan Lewis about his new album, The Golden Age, and about how recapturing joy may be the key to making every age a little more golden. Listen to Ray in conversation with Susan.  Ray talks-and plays a bit to make his points-about music and life, including why he loves the violin, how he and his colleagues came up with their unique arrangement for "Waltzing Matilda," and the role social media can play in classical music.
