Violinist Rachel Barton Pine will perform a piece written by composer Huang Ruo and commissioned by CFAS. The evening's performers will also include 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). Dedicated to CFAS founder, Barbara Tiao, whom many considered a "force of nature," the series launched in 2014 and 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.
