Carlsbad Music Festival Fundraiser: Wu Man

by The Editors on January 31, 2014

Each year the Carlsbad Music Festival brings music (with a capital M) to the Village of Carlsbad in what has become one of the most respected music festivals on the West Coast. To help raise funding for the 2014 event the Carlsbad Music Festival is hosting a benefit on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at the Carlsbad Inn Village Terrace.

Benefit guests will enjoy a catered reception, silent auction, and performance by Wu Man, world renown Chinese pipa player, Carlsbad resident and 2013 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year. . . Recognized as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, Grammy Award nominated musician Wu Man has carved out a career as a composer, soloist, and educator giving her lute-like instrument – which has a history of two thousand years in China – a new role in both traditional and contemporary music. Through numerous trips to her native China, Wu Man has premiered hundreds of new works for the pipa, while spearheading multimedia projects to both preserve and create awareness of China’s ancient musical traditions. Her adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across artistic disciplines allowing Wu Man to reach wider audiences as she works to break through cultural and musical borders.

Tickets can be purchased at www.carlsbadmusicfestival.org for $75 each or a pair for $125.WHAT: CMF 2014 fundraising benefit featuring a performance by pipa player Wu Man
