For those of you in the Northwest–I fully support this kind of presentation and outreach–just wish I lived closer (and didn’t regularly teach on Tuesdays)!
Dear friends and fans of the VICO,
Just a quick reminder of our Music of the Whole World presentation tomorrow, featuring conductor/composer Jin Zhang with VICO musicians Charlie Liu (dizi), Xiao Chenguang (Guanzi, dizi) and Jun Rong (gaohu). Take a musical trip with us to southwestern China, accompanied by photos and video from Jin’s recent travels! Details below. Hope to see you all there..
