Music from China: A Performance
Music From China celebrates two decades of performing traditional and contemporary Chinese music to audiences throughout the US. Founded in 1984 by Susan Cheng, Music From China has been praised by The New York Times for "grace and virtuosity" in performance.
The ensemble's numerous appearances include Princeton, Duke, Pittsburgh, Yale, Wisconsin, Dayton, Bucknell, Colgate Universities, Eastman School of Music, Bard College, Peabody Conservatory, UMKC Conservatory, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Weill Recial Hall at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, San Diego Museum of Art, Chautauqua Institution, the 92nd Street Y, Freer Gallery of Art with Yo-Yo Ma, Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Boston Early Music Festival, with the Avison Ensemble and live BBC broadcast in Newcastle, England, Midwest tours, and the Library of Congress.
Music From China was the recipient of an Adventurous Programming award from Chamber Music America and ASCAP, as well as numerous commissioning and performance grants for new music. The annual Premiere Works concert series in New York City promotes a growing repertoire of innovative works by established and emerging composers of contemporary Chinese music.
Other Music From China programs include touring and residencies, thematic concerts, Cantonese opera performances, arts in education, music instruction, summer music camps for children, conducting the Wesleyan University Chinese Music Ensemble, music commissioning, and sponsorship of an annual composers competition.
