In this concert Mencius Society of the Arts （孟藝學會） commemorates EastRiver Ensemble’s work, honoring particularly the collaborative synergy of Xiao Xiannian (蕭先念) on yangqin (hammered dulcimer) and Wu Peter Tang (唐武) on erhu, two childhood buddies who have brought their music and friendship to the northeast American shores, kindling the Dongbei (東北) musical tradition among generations of students and far-flung audiences. The two will perform a selection of personal favorites and New York inspirations, accompanied variously by members of the EastRiver Ensemble.
