Carolina Performing Arts, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill: The Philadelphia Orchestra with Yannick Nézet-Séguin

( Thu., Sep. 21, 2023 )

Performed by guzheng player Wu Fei and oud master Shanir Blumenkranz

Memorial Hall, 114 East Cameron Avenue, Chapel Hill, NC 27514


Join us for a vibrant celebration of music, migration, and the remarkable stories that connect us all.  On its thrilling second night in Chapel Hill, the Orchestra dives deep into migration stories and the complexities of its own global history. To open the evening, acclaimed guzheng player Wu Fei and oud master Shanir Blumenkranz join the Orchestra for Hello Gold Mountain, Fei’s requiem for the lost possibilities of the Jewish community in Shanghai.  After intermission, the Orchestra will bring their visit to a grand finale with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6—the anchor of its famed 1973 performance in Beijing.


The mission of Carolina Performing Arts is to spark curiosity, inspiring all members of our community to discover and more fully engage with the world.  We collaborate with dynamic and compelling artists from across the globe to create novel, mission-driven performing arts experiences in partnership with our community. We also open our venues to others to explore, create, and celebrate their own work.
