Performance of traditional and contemporary music from different regions of China and the Chinese Diaspora. Students perform on traditional Chinese instruments including the guzheng (zither), erhu (bowed fiddle), pipa (plucked lute), yangqin (hammered dulcimer), dizi (flute), and percussion. Students will choose 1-2 instruments to focus on for the semester based on instrument availability, interest, repertoire, and ensemble needs. Students with no prior musical experience (of any tradition) are welcome to attend the first rehearsal and discuss your interests with Professor Ouyang.
