He has been the recipient of commissions from the Koussevitzky and the Fromm Music Foundations, Meet the Composer, Chamber Music America, and ensembles around the world. He is the recipient of the 2003 Academy Award in Music from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. During the 2008–09 season, Zhou worked on a flute concerto for the California Pacific and Singapore Symphonies and a new chamber work for PRISM Saxophone Quartet with Chinese instruments, and he started his first opera, co-commissioned by the Opera Boston and Beijing Music Festival, which gave its première in 2010.
