Make sure to catch these fun events at the Twinsburg Public Library
Members of the Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble will perform as part of the Music in the Garden Series at Twinsburg Public Library on Sunday, July 15, at 2 pm.
Join the Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble for an enjoyable and informative afternoon of Chinese music, conjuring images of China's rich, colorful, and ancient heritage.
The varied program, comprising melodious "silk and bamboo" music as well as more festive pieces for winds and percussion, will be performed on an array of traditional wind, string, and percussion instruments, including bamboo flutes, mouth organs, fiddles, lutes, gongs, and drums.
For a special treat, audience members will be invited to play Chinese percussion instruments and join the ensemble for an interactive finale.
This will be the ensemble's first Twinsburg appearance.
