AMERICAN conductor David Stern, 52, is on a mission to share the joys of Baroque music with listeners in China. In fact, Stern was in town just a couple of weeks ago to direct the second Shanghai Baroque Festival, an event he helped found.

During the festival, Stern led a performance of Handel’s “Alcina” with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and his own Opera Fuoco Ensamble.

“Music speaks in a way that no other art form can. It helps us become a better person, one who listens to others and communicates,” says Stern.

Stern attributes his own passion for communicating through music to his famous father, violinist Isaac Stern.
