chatterbird presents an evening of music from its Composer-in-Residence, Wu Fei. A native of Beijing, China, Wu Fei is a genre-bending composer, virtuoso musician, and vocalist. She is a master of the guzheng, the ancient 21-string Chinese zither. Trained as a Western classical composer, Wu Fei mixes her Western and Chinese traditional sensibilities with a contemporary idiosyncratic, experimental dialect nurtured by years spent at Mills College and immersed in the New York downtown improvisation scene. She frequently collaborates across genres to create unique new work, with partnerships ranging from banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck to avant-garde composer John Zorn. Repertoire will include Wu Fei's compositions for chamber ensembles and guzheng. The group will also present her tea ceremony improvisation to accompany historical film clips selected from the Nashville Public Library's archives.

Tickets are $20 (free admission for Blair students and faculty), available at chatterbird.org or at the door. Parking for this event is available for free in West Garage (2500 Children's Way) through the Children's Way entrance
