Pipa Virtuoso Wu Man Performs with the Shanghai Quartet
Wu Man is recognized as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and is a leading ambassador of Chinese music. Her career as a soloist, educator and composer has given her “lute-like” instrument a new role in both traditional and contemporary music.
This Sunday (2/19) evening at 7:30 p.m., Wu Man will be performing with the Shanghai Quartet at the Modlin Center for the Arts (University of Richmond). I had an energizing conversation with Wu about her background and the music she’ll be presenting this weekend. If you’re interested in attending the concert, you purchase tickets online at the Modlin Center’s website!
Yours in good music,Mike Goldberg
