Performing on traditional instruments -- lutes, fiddles, zithers, hammered dulcimer -- the musicians invoke the sonorities of age-old musical traditions and interpret the music of today. The ensemble has performed at such venues as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, the Boston Early Music Festival, Chautauqua Institution, and the 92nd Street Y, and at colleges and universities including Princeton, Duke, Yale, Bard, the Peabody Conservatory and the Eastman School of Music. A proponent of new music, Music From China has commissioned and performed works by such award-winning composers as Bright Sheng, Chen Yi and Zhou Long. Music From China is the recipient of an Adventurous Programming special commendation from Chamber Music America and ASCAP for creative programs that combine the music of East and West.
