Wu Man, pipa
With Yang Yi, zheng
SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 2019
Venue Berlind Theatre
As the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, Wu Man has given the lute-like instrument a new role in both traditional and contemporary music. McCarter audiences may be familiar with her work already as one of the founding members and lead soloists of the Silk Road Ensemble, alongside prodigious cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Her return to Princeton will be accompanied by Yang Yi playing the zheng.
As of March 1, the shuttle between the train station and McCarter is no longer running.
The Dinky train service from Princeton Junction to Princeton is suspended until Spring 2019. NJ Transit is providing substitute bus service. Buses will depart Princeton station 15 minutes prior to the scheduled train departure time. View updated bus schedule.
