The Five Elements Project: Season Finale Concert
Sunday, May 17
Roosevelt University Ganz Hall

Launched in 2014, the “Five Elements Project” has been a exploration of music inspired by the ancient Chinese philosophy (五行) that describes all natural phenomena: earth, wood, metal, fire, and water.

Dedicated to CFAS founder, Barbara Tiao, whom many considered a “force of nature,” the series has brought together an impressive array of artists, as well as 2 world premieres by Pulitzer Prize Winning composer, Zhou Long, and New York-based composer, Huang Ruo.

The Season Finale will be a celebration of all Five Elements, and will feature both traditional and contemporary works by Chinese and Chinese American composers. The impressive line-up of performers include internationally renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine with pianist Matthew Hagle, Silk Road Ensemble’s Yang Wei (pipa), and Chicago-based musicians Yuqi Deng (guzheng), Juliet Petrus (soprano), the Liang-He Piano Duo, and Herine Koschak (cello).

Tickets available starting April 30 at
