China Philharmonic Orchestra's Long Yu

China Philharmonic Orchestra 

When: Thu., Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $10-$59

As we enter the time of year when orchestral programming turns its focus toward the holidays, Carolina Performing Arts offers a break in form as it flexes its international muscle. Memorial Hall will welcome the China Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Long Yu, as well as guest solo pianist Clara Yang. Founded in 2000, the orchestra has steadily earned a place among longer-running international orchestras of greater renown. The focus of the concert will be the American premiere of Four Spirits, a CPA-commissioned piece by composer Chen Yi that explores four creatures—a blue dragon, red phoenix, white tiger, and a black turtle-snake hybrid—that are central to Chinese mythology. —Allison Hussey
