What do you get when you put a string orchestra together with a Chinese Guitar? WGLT's Charlie Schlenker tells us it's something like this fusion of east and west that you can hear more of this weekend in Bloomington.
You heard Wu Man performing "Ambushed from all Sides" in an ancient traditional style and "White Snow in Spring," a popular tune in China, and excerpts from Tan Dun's "Concerto for Pipa and Strings" performed by the Prairie Ensemble. The Illinois Symphony Orchestra Chamber Concert is 7:30 Saturday evening at Second Presbyterian Church in Bloomington.
