The Orchid Ensemble will return to Lyon College at 7:30 p.n. Thursday, October 27 in the Bevens Music Room of Brown Chapel.
Established in 1997, the JUNO-nominated ensemble blends ancient musical instruments and traditions from China and beyond. It embraces a variety of musical styles, ranging from the traditional and contemporary music of China to jazz and creative improvisation.
Lauded as “one of the brightest blossoms on the world music scene” by the Georgia Straight, the Orchid Ensemble has tirelessly developed an innovative musical genre based on the cultural exchange between Western and Asian musicians.
Lyon is a part of the Orchid Ensemble’s Fall 2016 Tour, which includes Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Maine, Texas and Arkansas.
The Orchid Ensemble will present a post-concert lecture at 7 p.m. Friday, October 28, in Nucor Auditorium. Admission is free to both events.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
