As we celebrate the Year of The Dog this Chinese New Year, The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music also celebrates the 60th anniversary of our Music of China Ensemble. The Ensemble, established by the late Professor Tsun-Yuen Lui, and now directed by Professor Chi Li, promotes Chinese arts and culture at UCLA and in the greater Los Angeles community. Each year, over 100 UCLA students from all areas of campus, including music, join the ensemble to study traditional Chinese instruments and perform Chinese music, folk dance and opera.
The Music of China Ensemble Support Fund provides crucial funding for performances and supports the maintenance and repair of our Chinese instrument collection. Your gift will ensure that UCLA students can continue to study and perform Chinese musical arts.
