Wu Fei: Hello Gold Mountain (Musical Performance)
February 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Wu Fei is a renowned master of the guzheng, the 21-string Chinese zither, an instrument dating back 2,500 years. This original composition is performed by members of the Lehigh University Philharmonic conducted by Professor Paul Salerni, featuring Wu Fei on guzheng and Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz on oud — the traditional Chinese and Jewish plucked string instruments respectively. The work is inspired by real stories of Jewish refugees who fled to Shanghai from Europe before and during World War II, and built lives in China.
