Whitehead Concert Series Jan. 27

January 24, 2014

The 2013-2014 Whitehead Concert Series presents traditional Chinese music played by Hui Weng on the guzheng (Chinese Zither) and Sanwei Zhang on the piano. Music will include The Sorrow of Linan Town by Zhanhao He and At Night On the Lake Beneath the Maple Bridge by Wang Jianmin. Hui Weng is the first guzheng player to study at the New England Conservatory (NEC). She is devoted to exploring a distinctive, personal style of guzheng performance that maximizes the potential of the instrument and generates its unique expressive tension on stage. Sanwei Zhang won the China National Piano Competition for young musicians at the age of eight and has performed on numerous stages since. She is currently also pursuing her master’s degree at the NEC. The concert will be held on Monday, January 27, 12:00-12:45pm at the Whitehead Auditorium. All concerts in this series are free for the Whitehead Community and friends. Refreshments will be served and discount lunch tickets will be available at the door on the day of the concert.  Photo by USDAgov.
