The Eternal Moon Concert
October 1, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Binghamton University presents a World Premiere Concert: Beijing Meets Binghamton
The Binghamton University Department of Music and the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera present the “Eternal Moon” concert at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 1 in Watters Theater in the Fine Arts Building at Binghamton University. This concert is the culmination of a more than two-year collaboration project between the Binghamton University Music Department and the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera.
The program will include compositions that are based on traditional Chinese poems about the moon, written by Chinese poets Li Bai, Su Shi, Lü Benzhong and Xin Qiji. The faculty at the National Academy of Chinese Theater Arts (NACTA) in Beijing have written the vocal melodies and the Binghamton University composition students have arranged the melodies for a cross-traditional ensemble featuring Binghamton University and NACTA faculty performers, as well as Binghamton University student and alumni vocalists. Don’t miss this remarkable and unique performance!
