Sizhu - Silk and Bamboo Chinese Music
Published May 11, 2007

The Center for Traditional Music and Dance and Rubin Museum of Art present four concerts of Sizhu - Silk and Bamboo Chinese Music. This series features four stellar ensembles active in the New York Chinese Community today, presenting their variations on this preeminent chamber ensemble format of Chinese music. The musical configuration of silk strings and bamboo wind instruments has traditional roots in the folk music of the various regions of China. The same configuration is featured in a wide variety of settings and is also used in the music of contemporary composers.

CTMD is committed to preserving and presenting the performing arts traditions of New York's ethnic and immigrant communities through research-based educational programming, public performance and community partnerships. RMA is dedicated to Himalayan art embracing Central and South Asia and China. The context in which the concerts are being presented lead up to the Museum's forthcoming exhibition: Wutaishan: Pilgrimage to Five Peak Mountain (opening May 10), a Buddhist sacred site dedicated to Manjushri south west of Beijing. The site is still of great importance to Chinese, Mongols, Tibetans and Nepalis.

Fourth Concert: Saturday, May 12, 2007 at 6:00PM

Min Xiao Fen and her Blue Pipa Trio with special guest gaohu master Li Yang-Yi present musical improvisations and cross-cultural dialogue from Chinese traditions to jazz.

The Rubin Museum of Art is located at 150 West 17th Street New York, NY 10011.

Tickets at $15 can be purchased in advance by calling the RMA Box Office at 212.620.5000 ext. 344.
