Firebird Chinese Orchestra the Finale to a Brilliant Fall Performing Arts & Culture Series

The Firebird Youth Chinese Orchestra performed to an enthusiastic audience of more than a hundred people in the closing event of the Fall Performing Arts & Culture series sponsored by the Cupertino Library Foundation.

The Orchestra included about 30 musicians a number of whom explained and demonstrated their traditional instruments, ranging for example from the Erhu and Pipa to the Diza and Yangqin, in between the performance of 11 traditional Chinese pieces.

Members of the Orchestra stayed afterward to allow closer inspection of the Chinese musical instruments and answered audience questions.

A special thanks to the Cupertino community who have supported all of the Fall Performing Arts and Culture events which were held in the Community Hall by the Library throughout Fall 2013!
