Malaysia-born New York-based Composer, Multi-instrumentalist and Improviser. Chow’s music has been lauded by Financial Times for its “skilful contrasts in both volume and texture”. His music explores the indefinite possibilities of tone colour and sound. Chow’s thorough knowledge of skills and characteristics of both Chinese and Western instruments has made him a leading figure in merging music of East and West. March 2017, he received the Grand Prize of Best Orchestra Work by Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra International Composition Competition. He is currently the Composer-In-Residence of Teng Company (Singapore) and Vivo Experimental Orchestra (Malaysia).

He then switches to trombone during his high school’s first year. He gained his Bachelor’s degree from Soochow University in Taiwan.

Lance is also passionate in playing recitals, performing solo works, as well as chamber music with friends. He made his debut with the Soochow University Philharmonic Orchestra in 2014, after emerging as the winner from his university’s solo competition of the same year.
In 2017, he was selected to participate in trombone maestro, Christian Lindberg’s masterclass in Lübeck, Germany.
