Chinese Visiting Scholar Jin Zhang Presents Vocal Music Recitals

Jin Zhang, a current visiting scholar from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, held a Chinese Vocal Recital in the Jerilyn S. McIntyre Music Building Recital Hall on January 13, 2019.  The recital was organized by the CWU Music Department, the Music School of Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the Performing Arts Committee of Jiangsu Province Musicians’ Association, and co-sponsored by the CWU Music Department and the Confucius Institute of the State of Washington. 

Zhang’s recital, which was attended by a variety of students, staff, faculty and community members, spanned many genres of Chinese music, and ranged from solo pieces to those with accompaniment from Ling Li on piano, Yan Yang on zither, and Jiang Leyang, Yang’s son, on cello.  Yang and Li are also current visiting scholars from Nanjing Xiaozhuang University.
