Mar 4, 2018 Campus life

If you have not heard a Guqin played live, you have not experienced what this ancient Chinese musical instrument is capable of. To hear just how much a Guqin is capable of, lovers of music have been turning to the music in ancient China for almost 3000 years.

Performed by famous artists Li Xiangting and Li Pengpeng, the event was to mark the opening of a campus event on the Chinese Traditional culture, especially to raise the awareness of “Li,” Chinese etiquette, among young people on and off the campus.

The Chinese Traditional Culture Festival will run throughout March, ending on April 2nd to celebrate the country’s cultural etiquette, with free entertainment in the form of:

  3. c. Other fun and games, and a Photo Exhibition.


Concert and Activity review:

Event: Guqin Performance

Artist: Li Xiangting & Li Pengpeng

Warmly applauded by the audience, Li Xiangting and Li Peng Peng two masters dressed in traditional Chinese costumes were onto the stage. As an ancient musical art, Guqin draws audiences' thinking with its low and distant tone. The opening song "Plum Blossom" is the ancient song of more than 800 years ago, a melody, they seem to pull back thousands of years ago.

March 2 at 8 pm, Li Xiang Ting and Li Peng Peng will continue to lead you into the world of Guqin, into the ancient musical art.

The two artists presented a lecture on the art of the Guqin on 2nd March.

The character “Yuan” means a lot in Chinese traditional culture. The activity of eating “Tangyuan” (sweet dumpling) symbolizes people’s expectation to the well-being future.

On March 2nd, 7-8 pm, a series of interesting activities were organized by Shuren residential college at Lichee Yuan, block four, ground floor. The faculty and students participated in these activities together, such as making sweet dumplings, making lanterns, guessing lantern riddles, and flying Kong Ming lanterns.

“Li” means etiquette, which plays an important role in Chinese traditional culture. As the quintessence of Chinese culture, every part of the Beijing Opera shows the significance of etiquette. As the old saying goes, “Art comes from life, but is higher than life.” Beijing Opera can not only show the etiquette in traditional culture but also can influence our modern life.

We believe that the fusion of Chinese and western cultures through music will provide all attendees with a wonderful understanding of both cultures and how they work together.
