As a conductor, Yu-Feng has served as music director for more than ten choirs, including Taiwan’s National Chiao-Tung University Chorus, National Cheng-Chi University Law Department Chorus, as well as several high school and community choirs across Taiwan. He has performed with international award-winning choirs and introduced contemporary Asian choral music to American audiences as a guest conductor of the Choral Arts Society of Utah.
