Chris played the Dizi (Chinese flute) in his secondary school Chinese orchestra. He switched to play the Sheng (Chinese mouth organ) when he joined a community centre Chinese orchestra in 1992. Since then, the Sheng has become an important ‘companion’ in his life. In the recent years, he has been busy with many commitments and is not an active performer as compared to his younger days. However, he will still continue to contribute to the outreach and development of the Sheng through other channels.
