Unfazed by the challenges of pandemic, Tian and his iSING! team mounted a monumental music project, Ancient Tang Poems From iSING! Suzhou to the World, which made its world premiere on November 24, 2020 in Suzhou. It started with iSING!’s first International Composition Competition, which resulted in 15 young composers commissioned to write new music set to poems from the Tang Dynasty 1300 years ago.  Eleven singers from 7 countries were invited to interpret in Mandarin these immortal Tang poems through the universal language of music, marking a new chapter in contemporary Chinese music making.
