Tickets for our 2017 spring concert are now available for purchase from the Kaufman Music Center website! Full price tickets are $25.00; student/senior rate tickets ($15.00) may be purchased from the box office in person. The concert will begin at 3:00 PM in Merkin Concert Hall, near Lincoln Center on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
We're really excited about this concert: we're going to be presenting two new arrangements of Western pieces for Chinese traditional instruments to explore our own range and to let some of the new composers working with us gain a further familiarity with Chinese instruments. You'll have a chance to hear the love theme from the Godfather and Antonín Dvořák's Humoresque no. 7 featuring guest cellist James Waldo and erhu soloist Wang, Yang.
And, of course, we'll be presenting traditional Chinese art pieces, in both the chamber and full orchestra contexts.
We hope to see you there!
