Stringing Zithers presented a collection of Asian Zither instruments. Led by Wei li on guzheng, the stringed zithers were brought to life by guest performers Kozue Matsumoto on koto, Grace Jong Eun Lee on Kayagum and accompanied by our talented ensemble on erhu and ruan. Wei li was the first Chinese instrumentalist to be nominated for a 2009 Grammy for performance on guzheng. The night’s program included solos that demonstrated technical skills developed from lifelong training as well as exhibiting the musical brilliance created when the instruments are played together. The venue was filled to capacity and the concert was sold out.
