Artistic Director of Guelph Symphony Orchestra and Music Director and Principal Conductor of Opera on the Avalon
"I had the pleasure of conducting Happy Diamond, with Ms. Shirley Choi herself at the piano, accompanied by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. I enjoyed the composition very much, and it was obvious from the reaction from the audience that Shirley's music resonated with them as well."
Academy Award Winning Producer
“Shirley is an inspiration and a versatile composer. While processing a stylistically distinct sound, Shirley's music has been known to explore and incorporate different genres, including jazz, pop, orchestra, Chinese classical and European classical”

"Shirley's symphony Happy Diamond is very soothing to listen to as well as beautifully scored. I could hear music of that type being used in an appropriate movie soundtrack."
