SMWC presents Beauty and Melody
September 22nd, 2010 | SMWC
See the history of music unfold through harmonic voices, graceful dances and melodic instruments. Take a journey through time, from the early dynasties of ancient China to the contemporary styles of modern music with Beauty & Melody, the world-renowned all-female musical ensemble from China.
Let us celebrate as one for WORLDFEST, a collaboration between Arts Illiana and The Woods. Join us as Beauty & Melody continue their first major U.S. tour with a performance in the Cecilian Auditorium at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College on October 2, 2010 at 7 p.m. Tickets are free, but space is limited. Arts Illiana insists that you are firmly committed to the amount of tickets you reserve.
As the cascading notes of the bamboo flute intertwine with the rhythmic beats of percussion instruments, Beauty & Melody will explore a variety of sounds and dances, reflective of their rich Chinese heritage. Using traditional Chinese instruments, such as ruan and pipa, these talented musicians offer friends of SMWC a unique cultural experience that will the resonate within the body and linger in the soul.
