A 21C Music Festival performance. In this newly minted festival, today’s most fearless musicians and composers bring us fresh new sounds and ideas.
8 CONCERTS. 5 NIGHTS. 20 PREMIERES!

Jia Guoping, Shi Fuhong, and Chen Xiaoyoug were invited to compose new works featuring pipa in combination with western instruments for pipa virtuoso Wei-wei Lan to perform with the New Music Concerts ensemble. In addition to her career as a concert soloist, pipa (solid-bodied Chinese lute) Wei-wei Lan coordinates a contemporary music program at the Beijing Conservatory. The concert will also include Imaginary Opera by Chinese-Canadian composer Alexina Louie.

Join us for an artist/composer chat following the performance.

Works by Jia Guoping, Shi Fuhong, and Chen Xiaoyoug co-commissioned by New Music Concerts with the assistance from The Royal Conservatory for the 21C Music Festival in 2014.

The 21C Music Festival is made possible through the generous support of Michael and Sonja Koerner.
