Year of the horse

Sunday, March 9th – 4:30-6:30 pm
Betty Wong & CMC Friends
in a transcultural musical celebration of the Year of the Horse!

Happy New Year!  

Celebrate with us the Chinese Year of the Horse — and the advent of Daylight Savings Time:  come and enjoy a multicultural concert featuring faculty and friends of San Francisco’s Community Music Center!

Yi Ming Li, guqin (ancient Chinese zither)
Peter Frentzel, shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute)
Betty Wong, huluxi (Chinese folk gourd flute) and piano
Shirley Wong Frentzel and the CMC Chinese Music Ensemble
Katelyn Lui, piano, Elena Dillon, clarinet & John Smalley, baritone
Harvey Robb and Ken Rosen (saxes), Betty Shaw
  and Randy Craig (piano) & Richard Saunders, bass

The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
