The Knights with Wu Man (Pipa virtuoso)

http://texasperformingarts.org/season/the-knights-wu-man-austin

 

Texas Performing Arts presents renowned pipa virtuoso Wu Man in concert with progressive New York classical ensemble The Knights for an elegant evening of classic and contemporary chamber orchestra works.

Recognized as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and as a leading ambassador of Chinese music, Wu Man creates and fosters projects that give this ancient instrument a new role in today’s music world, not only introducing the instrument to new audiences, but commissioning and premiering over a hundred new works. A Grammy-nominated artist, she has collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma in the recording of Silk Road and worked with renowned musicians including Tan Dun and the Kronos Quartet.

Hailed as “the future of classical music in America” by the Los Angeles Times, The Knights are an ensemble of adventurous musicians from the New York music scene who cultivate collaborative music making and creatively engage audiences in the shared joy of musical performance. Their unique roster includes composers, arrangers, singer-songwriters, and improvisers who bring a range of cultural influences to the group including jazz, klezmer, pop, and indie rock music. The orchestra’s extensive repertoire features traditional and contemporary masterworks of classical, popular, and world music in collaboration with such artists as soprano Dawn Upshaw and violinist Gil Shaham.

    Oh jeez and I live in San Antonio and unlikely to attend! Wu Man is my favorite pipa performer and I have been learning the pipa for a year now! Any chance Wu Man can come to San Antonio!?!?!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
