Tonight's Sounds of China performance is schedule as planned. Come enjoy an incredible evening of contemporary Chinese folk music!

Led by artistic director and composer Jiuyue Ma, Sounds of China features an outstanding ensemble of contemporary Chinese folk musicians blending the ancient and modern by combining traditional Chinese music with modern arrangements. The group incorporates traditional Chinese instruments such as erhu (a two-stringed spike fiddle), liuqin (a four-stringed Chinese mandolin), xun (a globular, vessel flute), pipa (a plucked four-string lute), and guhzeng (a Chinese zither) with Western orchestral instruments. With critically-acclaimed performances throughout the United States, Sounds of China has been recognized for increasing and cultivating the appreciation and understanding of traditional Chinese music and culture.

This event is part of the Tucker-Boatwright Festival of Literature and the Arts.
