Explore the Sound of Big Band and China
Alan Chan Jazz Orchestra with special guest Wang Hong.
The Alan Chan Jazz Orchestra collaborates with multi–instrumentalist Wang Hong (appears on soundtracks of Kung Fu Panda and Legend of Korra TV series) to juxtapose sounds of the big band and Chinese instruments for the first time. After a demo of various instruments from China, ACJO and Hong will perform a new version of "Rock-Paper-Scissors" for erhu (Chinese fiddle) and jazz big band. Don't miss the preview of ACJO's upcoming album Shrimp Tale as well!
** There will be a reception following this event.
