Taking inspiration from his grandfather, Francis Wong has created a work in four movements called WONG WEI'S GAMBLE. Wong Wei was a professional jockey and a business manager who dared to re-open the international race track in in Tianjin, China during the Japanese occupation in World War II. It was a risky move: but he did it to provide employment, entertainment, and community for his city during this dark period.
Artists featured: Francis Wong, Tatsu Aoki, Lenora Lee, John-Carlos Perea, Yangqin Zhao, Karen Stackpole, Deszon X. Clairborne, Karl Evangelista.

Please consider making a gift to Inspira: The Power of the Spiritual, A Performance Project by Amanda Kemp. Amanda says: "It's a performance project that I am creating with jazz saxophonist Francis Wong, my betrothed violinist Michael Jamanis, and Matthew Armstead, a community organizer/storyteller/vocalist. Inspira is unlike anything I have done before, and it requires extended real time collaboration and discovery."
