A celebration of Chinese music

Gatineau, Quebec, May 25, 2007 — On June 2 and 3, enjoy the music of local Chinese musicians, Mr. Guosen Tao and Ms. Zichan Yang at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. The two musicians will perform a variety of traditional Chinese music inside the Treasures from China exhibition space. Mr Guosen Tao will play several traditional instruments, including the erhu (Chinese violin), the banhu (Chinese traditional bowed string instrument) and the hulusi (a single pipe free-reed instrument). Ms. Zichan Yang will accompany him with the guzheng (a plucked, half-tube zither with movable bridges and 21 strings).

This activity is presented in conjunction with the Museum’s newest exhibition Treasures from China, where visitors will see some of civilization’s finest artifacts, illuminating the rich history and achievements of the Chinese people. The exhibition is presented until October 28, 2007.
