Singing with Chinese Poetry
Following the successful Chinese New Year celebrations and the Multilingual Poetry and Music Festival, we are delighted that a cohort of talented Chinese students at Queen’s are preparing for another similar event – The Songs from Spring – a concert of classic Chinese art songs enriched with poetic language and music.
Leading this event, Yifan SHI, a PhD student in Music introduces her goal of hosting this concert:
Chinese music has been greatly influenced by Western music, yet it mains its unique Chinese character, enriched by language and poetry culture. Our aim is to promote cultural exchange between China and the UK and introduce more people in the university and community to the beauty of Chinese music and culture. Sit back and enjoy the enchanting melodies and rhythms of the East as we bridge the gap between cultures through the universal language of music.
