There are few greater gifts than to discover one's true passion in life. As such, the award-winning Chinese bass-baritone Charles Cao Quin says music has brought joy to his life - but only now, after the varied experiences he has had over time, has he been able to fully comprehend and take advantage of his musical abilities to the fullest.
"I have much to be grateful for. It (music) has given me purpose, accomplishment, and spiritual well-being," says Cao, 58. He credits much of his personal development to his passion for music, and believes his appreciation and understanding of the art has improved with time.
