Bright Sheng and Friends: East/West

Sunday, March 21, 4 pm

UM School of Music, Theatre, and Dance faculty composer, MacArthur fellow, and CCS faculty associate Bright Sheng presents his own works—A Night at the Chinese Opera, Three Chinese Love Songs, Seven Tunes Heard in China, The Stream Flows, and the Third String Quartet—juxtaposed with studies in orientalism by Maurice Ravel and Bela Bartok. Sheng is joined by fellow SMTD faculty Stephen Shipps and Logan Skelton, the Phoenix Ensemble, DMA cellist Paul Dwyer, and guest artist Jennifer Goltz.

Tradition Transformed is made possible in part the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, the UM Center for Chinese Studies, and the Blakemore Foundation. Additional support was provided by Mary Palmer and the George Dewey and Mary J. Krumrine Endowment.
