Beginning with the fall 2016 semester, the Chinese Music Ensemble has been offered as a special topics course to all students. The instructors are professors and graduate students from the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China, and instruments are provided.

Registration requires permission from Han and the MTSU School of Music.

“Together with their Chinese teachers, the concert will bring a new musical and cultural experience to the audience,” Han said.
