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.
