Chicago Immigrant Stories: Chinatown

January 16, 2018 at 6:30PM, Chinese American Museum of Chicago

CJP’s artistry of cross-genre collaborations will meld with the musical culture of some of Chicago’s immigrant communities, in a series of small group “Innovation Lab” workshop performances that will culminate in a large orchestral event at Millennium Park on June 14, 2018.  The collaborations will be led by Orbert Davis and Howard Levy, working with select musicians across the city, and supported by CJP musicians (Ernie Adams on drums and Stewart Miller on bass).  

This collaboration with Chinese multi-instrumentalist, Kerry Leung, will be the first of the series. He will be joined by Menghua Guan on Guzhong (Chinese zither) and Guang Long Li on Erhu.  

Join us for this one-night-only event to witness jazz, classical, and music of the Chinese tradition meld and connect in new and unexpected ways. The musicians will share their stories and their music to create a shared experience of what it means to be a Chicagoan and an American.

The Chinese American Museum will be available for self-guided and docent led tours prior to and following the performance.
