Classical Chinese Instruments: An Introduction Theatre & Performing Arts

classical_chinese_instruments_an_introduction


Discover exotic sounds and learn about the history of Chinese music as we take a closer look at several classical Chinese instruments.

If it's your first time joining us, then this seminar is completely FREE!

Are you a fan of classical music? Are you always on the look out for fresh new sounds? Or do you fancy learning about a musical tradition that is vastly different from your own?

Then join us for our captivating seminar on Chinese classical instruments!

During the first half of our seminar, we'll be discussing the 3,000-year-long history of music in China and the way in which instruments were categorised according to Chinese tradition. This classification system is known as the Bāyīn (八音) or "Eight Sounds" and is based on the main material used to make the instruments, rather than the way in which the instrument is played.

Throughout the rest of the seminar, we'll take a closer look at an instrument from each category and listen to clips of them being played. Alongside learning about several lesser-known Chinese instruments, you'll also have the opportunity to engage in several discussions during our seminar and share your love of music.

Why not join us for a harmonious and relaxing evening of Chinese classical music?
