Description

Chinese Violin Workshop with Zhao

Come along and experience playing the Chinese violin (also known as Erhu). The two string fiddle of Chinese origin will make you smile as you learn a few tunes.


Zhao Liang is the School Artistic Principal at the School of Chinese Music. She began learning the Guzheng (Chinese harp) at the age of six in Singapore. Arriving in Adelaide in 2004, Zhao established the School of Chinese Music & Arts in Gouger St. Zhao is an exciting and highly accomplished performer - she has played solo or with groups at many important events including OzAsia Festival, Government House receptions, Festival Centre concerts and other public and private events. She has also been a guest lecture at the Adelaide University Confucius Institute, and also performed live on ABC Radio and on Radio Adelaide.

In recent years, Arts SA has funded her to attend Masterclasses in China to further support her training of local artists and musicians in Chinese Music.

Zhao is currently engaged in a number of stimulating and ground breaking projects including her Multicultural Storytimes program for 0-5year olds which are presented in local libraries. This project is funded by Multicultural SA. In 2016 Zhao initiated An Oriental Flair, an 8piece ensemble of eastern harps and western strings. She is also a founding member of Moonta Street - a new group presenting a contemporary world music sound blending Chinese and European traditional music.

Use of violins included.
