Tze Yeung Ho is a Norwegian-Canadian composer of Cantonese descent. Despite being a native of Oslo, Norway, he spent most of his formative years in Toronto, Canada. His music is regularly performed in Toronto and Oslo venues such as the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto, Gallery 345, Hart House, Kunstnernes hus, Kulturhuset, Levinsalen and Array Space and has also been recorded by the Blue Bridge Festival Orchestra in Sutton, Ontario and the ACCO Academy in Lithuania. He is a member of the Norwegian Society of Composers (Norsk Komponistforening), a board member in NyMusikk composers' group and an associate of the Hong Kong Composers' Guild. Tze Yeung was also one of the seven young composers to represent Norway in the UNM (Ung Nordisk Musikk) festival of 2015 held in Helsinki, Finland, where his saxophone concerto ingest thrice, as prescribed; received its premiere by the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra. The same work is currently highlighted in the Norwegian Society of Composer's jubilee orchestral catalogue. Recent events include his participation in the Druskomanija festival (Vilnius, Lithuania) and the founding of the Oslo-based new music ensemble: +47. Tze Yeung has also worked with German recorder virtuoso, Caroline Hausen, on an electroacoustic project, funded by the Culture Council (Kulturrådet) of Norway. "The juxtaposition of the grotesque and the ethereal," "brutal," and "visceral and gritty" are among some descriptions for Tze Yeung's repertoire. He has a keen interest in developing different forms of intra- and inter-personal symbolisms in his compositions.
