Reflection on the Beauty of Chinese Classics through Contemporary Folk Songs with the China Institute

Seward Park Library

192 East Broadway
New York, NY 10002

Join us for a cultural lecture brought to us by the China Institute! Rooted in the classical forms of Chinese poetry, "Campus Folk Song" was originated in Taiwan during the 1970s and considered to be part of a new modern wave that spread far and wide across Chinese speaking areas. The melodies and lyrics in Campus Folk Songs not only embody the essences of the Chinese literature legacy but also manifest the beauty of Chinese culture and aesthetics that transcend East and West, classics and contemporary.

  • Dr. Hsing-Lih Chou, one of the pioneers of Campus Folk Song, will guide the audience through the beauty and virtue found in the Chinese words that remain reminiscent to many in the Chinese communities around the world.

This free program is brought to you by Culture Pass.

Culture Pass is supported by generous funding from The New York Community Trust, Charles H. Revson Foundation, Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
