Wuji Ensemble’s “Salon Concert” Series, moderated by music director and renowned pipa player Wong Chi Ching, inspires the participants’ perceptions of life through live performance and intimate interaction. The concert aims to achieve a deep appreciation of Chinese music from a new perspective, to lead to the audience’s understanding of traditional Chinese art and culture, as well as an in-depth exploration of Chinese aesthetics. It is hoped that through music, the audience will grasp the interaction and importance of art and the cultivation of the mind, and eventually increase their artistic experience and cultural accomplishment. The theme of the three “Salon Concerts” revolves around Chinese operas, including Nanyin, Nanguan and Kunqu Opera. Different guests are invited to each concert.
