Guzheng and Erhu: A Dialog Between the Strings Dr. Jerry Lin and Emily Deng
China has a rich heritage of music extending back over 7,000 years from Han Chinese and the many ethnic minorities. Confucius taught that a correct form of music is important for the cultivation and refinement of the individual and could bring harmony to nature. Taoists believe music calms the heart and purifies the mind. Virtuosos Emily Deng with a plucked string on the Guzheng, and Dr Jerry Lin with a bowed string on the Erhu, will perform solos and duets from popular classical Chinese music of various regions of China. Come experience the haunting and beautiful sounds of the Guzheng and Erhu.
