Chinese Music Ensemble

The Chinese Music Ensemble in performance

The Chinese Music Ensemble, co-directed by Guowei Wang and Lei Ouyang Bryant, performs traditional and contemporary music from different regions of China and the Chinese Diaspora. Students perform on traditional Chinese instruments including the guzheng (zither), erhu (bowed fiddle), pipa (plucked lute), yangqin (hammered dulcimer), dizi (flute), and percussion. The ensemble has no prerequisites and is open to students with OR without prior Chinese musical experience. Students with no prior musical experience (of any tradition) are welcome to attend our first rehearsal and discuss your interests with the directors. Weekly rehearsals are on Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30 PM in Lang Music Building Room 415, plus an additional 30 minutes per week in smaller groups (“sectional”), day and time TBA.
