The New Silk Road Series Erhu Jazz Harp Piano Fusion Concert
A fusion music evening where class and modern oriental music meets western jazz; this is a concert that should never be missed. Master Guo Gan, erhu master from the movie Kung Fu Panda 3 and the recipient of the 2015 Medalist of the Knights in French Literature and Arts, will bring us to his musical world of the New Silk Road, where we replace ancient camels with modern airplane travel. Bring musicians and their musical roots together, the evening concert will give you such a surprise that you would never imagine. Guo Gan is from Paris France with his roots from the city of Sheng Yang in Northern Eastern China. Park Stickney from Switzerland with his American background will bring us his style from his home state of Arizona and Brooklyn, where he attempts to simultaneously live. Jessica Yuen, our Hong Kong-born local Calgary musician, will fuse the European musicians together at the concert. The concert also includes several world premier original compositions from Master Guo with our local Viva Musica Youth Choir, fusion arrangement with tango dancers from Calgary Tango, and other guest local musicians.
