Min Xiao-Fen: Music for the Pipa

Saturday, January 21 / 3PM

Few artists have done more to honor and reinvent the 2000-year history of the pipa than soloist, vocalist, and composer Min Xiao-Fen. Classically trained in her native China, Min was an in-demand interpreter of traditional music before relocating to the United States and forging a new path alongside leading lights in modern jazz, free improvisation, and contemporary classical music. This concert highlights traditional compositions for the pipa. This performance is free, tickets available 1 hour before performance

Min Xiao-Fen will also offer a short introduction to the pipa for families on Saturday afternoon at 1pm during the Museum’s annual Lunar New Year celebration.

This program was made possible by the generosity of Lois Ebin, in memory of Thomas Pepper.
