Join the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music on Sunday March 3, from 1:00 – 5:00 PM, for a musical afternoon celebrating the influence of traditional Chinese music on Western Classical Music. Please RSVP at this link.

1:00 – 1:40 PM Ostin Ensemble Room: Interpretation Class, led by conductor and erhu-ist Li Guangming. Join us with your instruments to study a simple silk and bamboo melody and then learn how to ornament and interpret it in the Chinese Jiangnan style. Open to all instrumentalists and composers.

1:50 – 3:00 PM Lani Hall: Panel Discussion. Join us for a conversation with erhu-ist Li Guangming and flautist He Bin about their musical education, the challenges and opportunities of cross-cultural music, and interpretational differences between Chinese and Western music with regard to rhythm, pitch, dynamics, ornamentation, and more. We may be lucky enough to hear Professors Li and He perform a duet for us.

3:20 – 5:00 PM Lani Hall: Master Class. Join us to hear our HASOM community members Phyllis Pan and Jennifer Jo, and guests from USC Alicia Kim and Paulina Delgado perform for our guest artists. Our guest artists will help them understand the notations of composers Zhou Long, Tan Dun, and Chou Wen-Chung from the perspective of Chinese music.

This event is supported by the Christine and Hugo Davise Fund for Contemporary Music.
