The RC Chinese Music ensemble course explores all opportunities to introduce music performance experiences, enhance music appreciation, and encourage cultural exchange in an opened manner among the students and the extended community. A great variety of instruments are offered in the course, such as Erhu, Pipa, Guzheng, Dizi, Xiao, and so on. Students will be able to play one instrument, as well as at least six musical pieces throughout the semester. Moreover, through musical practice and extensive team collaboration in the ensemble form, students are also expected to form an understanding on the cultural content behind each piece. In the meanwhile, the course also encourages and rewards students for attending guest lectures, concerts, and seminars offered by other campus Chinese units, like the Confucius Institute, as an introduction to other diverse topics of their own interests.

Course Requirements:

Students will be evaluated by their attendance, their learning of performance techniques and repertory, and performance at the end-of-the term concert.
