    Buddhist Music Ensemble of Zhihua Temple



    Get a glimpse into the sounds of ancient China as the temple musicians of Zhihua temply from China offer a rare window into their refined musical form, in all its courtly aesthetics and dignified elegance.

    In the year 1444 during China's Ming Dynasty, Wang Zhen, a powerful eunuch, established the Zhihua Temple in Beijing. Such was his influence that he introduced the royal court's ceremonial music to the temple without the sanction of the emperor, adapting it for its rituals. This tradition that he established has since been passed down faithfully for 27 generations. This April, get a glimpse into the sounds of ancient China as these temple musicians offer a rare window into their refined musical form, in all its courtly aesthetics and dignified elegance.

    Tickets from $15.
