Upcoming Musical Performances at St. Bede’s

MUSA — Chinese Baroque

Sunday, February 24, 4pm

Under the direction of Derek Tam, MUSA will present a program of European music written in and for Chinese courts, as well as Chinese music transcribed by European visitors of the 17th and 18th centuries. “Chinese Baroque” explores the dynamic and complex cultural exchanges between Western Europe and China in the 17th and 18th centuries through the lens of music. Despite mutual fascination, it was often difficult to surmount linguistic and cultural differences to reach a true understanding of each other. Works performed will include a violin sonata written by the missionary Teodorico Pedrini, as well as transcriptions of Chinese tunes through Western ears.
Tickets at the door: $25 general admission/$20 senior/$15 child or student w/ID.
