Feb. 7: Sounds of China to Present Weis Center Concert

Contemporary Chinese folk ensemble Sounds of China will perform in the Weis Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Led by artistic director and composer Ma Jiuyue, Sounds of China features an ensemble of contemporary Chinese folk musicians who blend the ancient with the modern by combining time-honored Chinese music with modern arrangements. The group incorporates traditional Chinese instruments like 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.
