Fulcrum Point New Music Project is proud to be featured as the music headliner at Asian Pop-Up Cinema‘s Lifetime Achievement Award Night, honoring Teddy Robin Kwan.* Fulcrum Point will perform the award-winning, original sound score of the movie Gallants, written by Honoree Teddy Robin Kwan, with music arranged by Tomy Wai against the projection of the movie montage specially edited by Chicago’s own David Baker. Stephen Burns will serve as the evening’s conductor and music director.
The musical program will also feature three of the honoree’s award-winning movie title songs performed by winners of a city-wide “Chicago’s Got Cantonese Talent” singing competition with Fulcrum Point providing the live accompaniment.
