Wang Beibei (SOAS Concert Series) - 02/12/2016 Fri, 2016-12-23 23:22

Chinese percussion extravaganza!

Wang Beibei is a virtuoso percussionist and rising star in the classical music world. She is an international soloist with both Chinese and British musical education, with Master Degrees from the Central Conservatory of Music (China) and the Royal Academy of Music (UK). She tours and performs worldwide with noted conductors, orchestras and soloists. Her musical sensibility of Chinese heritage and Western avant-garde influences serve her motto to challenge herself in every concert. By exploring new possibilities and challenging assumptions from all fields, she and her collaborators have developed genre-defying projects, pushing boundaries and delighting audiences the world over.

Concert hosted by ethnomusicologist Ruard Absaroka and Tessa Qiu (presenter of Bang Bang Bang De Qiao Men Sheng 梆梆梆的敲门声 on SOAS Radio).
