Using ancient instruments and musical traditions, Chinese composers connect the past to the contemporary. Tibetan goddess Tara, able to manifest in a rainbow of colors, comes alive in green, gold, blue, red and white in Emanations of Tara. Zhou Long's The Five Elements represents Chinese philosophies ruled by earth, fire, water, metal and wood. Stay after the concert to learn more about Chinese history as told through its Bronze Age culture.
