Event Details

.This panel discussion explores the long-term issue of national forms of China in the international context. The evening’s music event revolves around the orchestral performance of the Yellow River Concerto, a classic that expresses the revolutionary ethos by blending folk, indigenous, and local elements into a Western orchestral genre. Four scholars/critics will discuss the assumptions, innovations, and practices that modernize the folk and regional heritages.

Panelists: 

·   Emily Wilcox, specialist and professor in Chinese traditional dance and music at the University of Michigan

·   Christine I Ho, PhD student in art history at Stanford. Area of specialty:  national painting and socialism

·   Haiyan Lee, associate professor of Chinese and comparative literature at Stanford University

Stanford Pan-Asian Music Festival

The Stanford Pan-Asian Music Festival celebrates its tenth anniversary with a series of concerts and cultural events featuring unique and talented artists from Tibet, Mongolia, and around the world February 1 – March 1, 2014.

 

Inaugurated in 2004-2005 season, the festival is dedicated to promoting an understanding and appreciation of music in contemporary Asia. Jindong Cai, the festival’s founder and artistic director, states that "It has been a remarkable ten years during which we have explored many of the rich and diverse musical cultures from Asia. With the festival as our looking-glass, we hope to continue bringing people and traditions from East and West together through music."

 

The 2014 Pan-Asian Music Festival begins on February 1st with a traditional Chinese New Year Concert by the Stanford Symphony Orchestra with renowned guest soloists, followed by a unique, two-weekend long celebration of traditional Tibetan and Mongolian music and dance by two visiting ensembles, the Tibetan Opera and Music Troupe and the Mongolian State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet.
