On Friday September 28th, 2018, William & Mary Confucius Institute volunteer teacher Tingting Mei will hold a Pipa Solo Concert at Ewell Recital Hall, as part of WMCI’s celebrations for Confucius Institute Day, which will honor the 14th anniversary of CIs around the world.


The pipa is a traditional Chinese instrument which may be compared to a lute. It is shaped like half a pear, and has four strings. Pipa players wear fake nails to pluck the strings back and forth. (The name “pipa” actually comes from the fact that the fingers flick the strings forward or backward.) This event is free and open to the public so come and enjoy the enchanting music!
