Orchid Ensemble

The CSU Concert Choir will join special guests, The Orchid Ensemble, in an evening of music that blends eastern and western musical traditions. The Orchid Ensemble blends ancient musical instruments and traditions from China and other Asian cultures with Western percussion and choral music. This will truly be a memorable performance of unique music presented in the intimate Organ Recital Hall.

Established in 1997, the JUNO nominated Orchid Ensemble is Lan Tung (Taiwan/Canada) on the erhu/Chinese violin, Yu-Chen Wang (Taiwan/US) on the zheng/Chinese zither, and Jonathan Bernard (Canada) on percussion. The ensemble blends ancient musical instruments and traditions from China and beyond, creating a beautiful new sound. The ensemble has embraced a variety of musical styles to its repertoire, ranging from the traditional and contemporary music of China, World Music, New Music to Jazz and Creative Improvisation. The energetic yet endearing performance style of the ensemble consistently intrigues and delights its audiences. Acclaimed as ‘One of the brightest blossoms on the world music scene’ (Georgia Straight), the Orchid Ensemble has been tirelessly developing an innovative musical genre based on the cultural exchange between Western and Asian musicians.

This show is part of the Classical Convergence Series co-presented by the Lincoln Center and Colorado State University.
