In February 2018, Reylon recorded a new work for yangqin by composer Alex Ho, "Rituals and Resonances" at Abbey Road Studios. The piece grapples with the tenuousness of identity, abstractions of heritage, and nostalgia for a home one's never lived in.
In January 2017, Reylon served as a faculty member at the inaugural Youth Music Culture Guangdong conference in Guangzhou. He coached 80 participants in folk music arrangement, improvisation, and storytelling through performance.
At TED 2016 in Vancouver, Reylon reconvened with the Silk Road Ensemble and Rhiannon Giddens to perform "St. James Infirmary Blues".
Reylon is featured on the Silk Road Ensemble's Grammy Award-winning album "Sing Me Home," available on Amazon and iTunes. The album explores the ever-changing idea of home through original and traditional folk tunes.
In October 2016, Reylon played this contemporary concerto composed by Sam Wu, alongside five talented cellists: Audrey Chen, Sophie Applbaum, John Lee, Ryan Song, and Brian Zhao.
Cultural Connections is a performance series that Reylon launched in Allston, MA, through the Harvard Ed Portal to showcase various music and dance traditions to local community members. These educational performances, held in local public schools and at the Ed Portal, are unique in that each piece is followed up with a Q&A about the history of the art form and the experience of performing in the arts in college. The series gives families the opportunity to watch an exciting array of performances for free, while undergraduate performers enjoy the chance to share their art with new audiences.
