1. St. Petersburg New Music Festival
2. São Paulo Contemporary Composers Festival
3. Borneo Jazz Festival
4. Malaysian Jazz Piano Festival (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center)
Foo Jeng holds a degree in Music Performance from Berklee College of Music and will be attending the Manhattan School of Music in Fall 2021. His ultimate goal is to create stories from his art, and to uncover beauty in the tradition and evolution of music.
