Apr.
15

On the afternoon of 15 April, more than 145 people came to the Center in Beijing to enjoy a concert that featured China's most venerable stringed instrument—Gu Qin (古琴). This concert came into being as an idea from the Faculty Director of the Center in Beijing, Professor Judith Farquhar, who has an interest in Gu Qin and the capacity of Gu Qin music to connect people. Facilitated by Yao Chen, a composer and UChicago alumni, the concert was led by Gu Qin musician Chen Leiji and joined by his friends who specialize in various Chinese music instruments such as erhu, zhongruan, and xiao. In addition to playing Gu Qin, Chen Leiji also shared his thoughts on what makes the Chinese music performance different from that in the West, making the concert not merely a musical feast but also a conversation among music lovers.
