    Many CIM alumni stay in Cleveland after graduation. They’re performers and musical entrepreneurs building their own music ensembles, series and festivals and bringing the joy of music to the community in new and creative ways.  Join us as they share their talent and experiences.  Our host is pianist, Shuai Wang.

He has written and arranged music for KFI Radio Los Angeles, Sea World, Harper Collins Audio Books, Second Story Productions, The Sylvia Rimm Show (NPR) and the documentary film Let Them Live for BBC 2, London. Other works include Health Journeys, a 50-volume Time-Warner audio book series; Hymn for String Orchestra, (pub. by Carl Fischer) which was recorded by the San Jose Chamber Orchestra; and many art songs (pub by Classical Vocal Repertoire). His three volumes of American folk song arrangements (under the title American Folk Set) were premiered at Carnegie Hall by David Daniels and Martin Katz and have been performed all over the world by a number of artists. Andrew Garland and Donna Loewy recorded the entire collection for Azica Records in 2008.

Mr. Kohn is also a writer and lyricist and has written lyrics for the stage musicals The Quiltmaker's Gift (Dramatic Publishing) Unstoppable Me, The Tale of the Nutcracker, and the stage show The Three Redneck Tenors, all to the music of Craig Bohmler. His screenplay for the television pilot, Little Mozart, was produced by OhLook!

His short story The Professor's Diary appeared in National Lampoon magazine. He recently completed the libretto for the grand opera Riders of the Purple Sage, based on the classic western novel by Zane Grey, (music again by Mr. Bohmler) which will receive a world premier production by Arizona Opera during the 2016-2017 season. Mr. Kohn was appointed to the CIM faculty in 1998.
