A Glimpse of China – Seattle Chinese Culture & Arts Festival (Virtual Event)

This event includes a performance of Chinese music played on Western instruments by the Zhenlun Cello Ensemble.

Zhenlun Cello Ensemble

The Seattle Center Festál: Glimpse of China–Seattle Chinese Culture & Arts Festival seeks to explore and promote 5,000 years of Chinese culture and heritage with live streaming music, martial arts, and other Chinese movement traditions, demonstrations, and decorative arts.

The online festival highlights traditional Chinese music. Pipa players from Seattle Chinese Orchestra perform The Beautiful Spring on this short-neck Chinese lute-like instrument. The full orchestra offers an arrangement of Shepherdess Song on traditional instruments, and a percussion ensemble from the group presents a rhythmic Holiday Celebration. In addition, China’s oldest musical instrument, the seven-stringed plucked Guqin, is featured in performance, and members of the Zhenlun Cello Studio will play Chinese music on this Western instrument.

The festival offers plenty of movement as well. Members of the Seattle Wushu & Taichi Academy demonstrate this traditional martial art, which combines softness within hardness, and slow motion with fast motion. The Wudang Martial Art Academy shares a historical narrative video tracing the origins of their marital art, complete with training, exhibition, and competition footage, and students from the Chinese Dances Academy showcase traditional dances they have performed for major Chinese holidays such as Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn Festival.

Seattle Center presents Festál: Glimpse of China – Seattle Chinese Culture & Arts Festival in partnership with the Washington Chinese Arts & Culture Committee. Streaming is free of charge. For more information, visit www.seattlecenter.com/festal or call 206-684-7200.

The Zen Practice Room: How to practice mindfully

Online Concert and Event Listings of the Week – 16 April

The Zen Practice Room

Every week many of us attend a yoga, Qi Gong or Feldenkrais class. There we go over the same ‘postures’ or patterns. We give ourselves the same directions. We pay attention to our breath and our mind moment to moment, and we start to remap our movement. As our biases change and holding patterns release, we find ourselves present and in flow. This is the true nature of practice.

Beginning with a short mindfulness practice to ‘arrive’ in the present moment and in our bodies, these weekly sessions offer such an approach to our instrumental practice. Our aim is not to learn as many notes in as short a time as possible but to slow down, take a phrase, and approach it in a holistic way so that every moment of our practice has the capacity to serve every moment of our music making. By looking at a phrase with curiosity from all angles, incorporating the breath, the feet, the mind, the heart and the spine, we will find ways to make our musical intention clear in the most effortless way and, in so doing, find ourselves on the slow highway to liberating our musical voice.

Register for all the sessions or individually (£10.00 per session).
