Xiaojun Huo, who is first chair of erhu in the folk music division of the China Opera and Dance Theater, shared her talents in a free public performance April 22 in the James E. Walker Library’s first-floor atrium at MTSU.
The erhu is a two-stringed, bowed musical instrument which sometimes is called a “southern fiddle,” or, in the Western world, a “Chinese violin.” It can be used in both traditional and contemporary music arrangements.
Dr. Arunesh Nadgir, an assistant professor of piano in the MTSU School of Music, accompanied Huo during the performance.
MTSU’s Confucius Institute sponsored this event in collaboration with the James E. Walker Library and the MTSU School of Music.
