Zhiming Han and Cynthia Hsiang

Two Chinese instrument virtuosos, Zhiming Han and Cynthia Hsiang, will perform Chinese music classics on traditional Chinese instruments-the dizi (Chinese flute), the zheng (Chinese zither) and the yang qin (butterfly harp).  They will present a brief overview of traditional Chinese music, and will also perform original compositions by Han, which blend both Western and Eastern influences.  The founders of the Chinese Classical Musical Ensemble, Han and Hsiang have been featured in numerous concerts around the world, including performances with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony.  Their music is also featured on the soundtrack of several Jackie Chan movies.
