Blend of East and West Concert, Nicholas Music Center at Rutgers University


Saturday March 23, 2019
7:30 PM

The concert, presented by the Kai Yue Foundation, will feature the Hulusi, a traditional Chinese instrument performed by Ms. Feng Yu. This unique collaboration, a Chinese folk wind soloist with a western symphony orchestra, is a rare treat for US audiences. The program will include a world premiere arrangement of the famous Chinese folk song "Swan Goose," as well as the US premieres of numerous other pieces for Hulusi and orchestra.

The Bravura Philharmonic Orchestra will also perform Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 4, known as the "Italian Symphony." In addition, the program includes the "Overture and March of Turandot" by Carl Maria von Weber. The piece starts with a genuine Chinese melody introduced by the piccolo, and Weber the first Western composer to use authentic Asian music. 

Ticket prices are $20 and $35 ($20 and $30 for seniors/students). Premium seating is available at $60 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased online at
