Celebrate The Vibrant Musical Tradition Of Asia
With scales, tonalities and techniques so different to those demanded by the Western classical tradition, the music of Asia is a rich tapestry of history, story-telling and sound. Celebrate the vibrant harmony of the East with a program of works by famous Indian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese composers, performed by the Seattle Chinese Orchestra. The only ensemble of its type in the Pacific Northwest, the orchestra is dedicated to promoting traditional Chinese music in the USA and beyond.
Joining the group will be special guest conductor DaYe Lin, principal conductor of the Guangzhou Symphony, as well as sitar superstar Nishat Khan, a master of Indian traditional music with a contemporary touch, and Erhu virtuoso Warren Chang, resident music director of the SCO. Together they'll be performing pieces by Zhou Long, Bochan Li, Nishat Khan himself and even Mozart!
