For 10 years, Music Beyond Borders, a collaboration between Morris Arts and Mayo Performing Arts Center has offered this summer series of free outdoor programs of world music and dance….bringing a taste of cultures from six continents to summer lunchtimes on the Morristown Green.
So, let’s take a trip down memory lane and sample some of the past delights of Music Beyond Borders – Music from China Trio from August 8, 2017
Below, Wang Junling concludes her performance of the zheng (plucked zither) solo, Typhoon (1960)…showcasing her virtuosity on the zheng and the powerful description of the Asian hurricane.
Below, the trio plays a piece depicting a Mongolian Horse Race, complete with the Chinese fiddle (the erhu) mimicking horses neighing. Performers include Wang Guowei (erhu), Susan Cheng on yangqin (hammered dulcimer) and Wang Junling on zheng (plucked zither).
