Recognized as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, GRAMMY Award-nominated musician Wu Man has carved out a career as a soloist, educator, and composer.

Wu Man has premiered hundreds of new works for the pipa—a lute-like instrument which has a history of over 2,000 years in China—while spearheading multimedia projects to both preserve and create awareness of China’s ancient musical traditions. Her work has become seminal in giving the pipa a new role in both traditional and contemporary music.

Catch Wu Man & Friends perform at 7:30pm on March 3, 2017 at the Bella Concert Hall, Mount Royal University (4825 Mount Royal Gate SW).
