Event Description
San Francisco-based ensemble Melody of China holds a unique position in the world of Chinese music. Since its conception, the group has drawn together enthusiastic professional musicians from some of the most prestigious conservatories in China for a common goal: advancing the Chinese musical tradition within the context of the dynamic American music world.

Melody of China has continued to impress diverse audiences with their expansive repertoire, which, alongside folk music from the different ethnic groups of China, includes classical, contemporary, and jazz. They have commissioned and premiered 40 new works by 20 composers and remain dedicated to their mission of blurring boundaries between East and West, ancient and contemporary.

The lecture and demonstration will be followed by a performance by Melody of China
