To everyone who helped to make our inaugural concert Music from China: East Meets West a great success!

To all visiting members of the Central Conservatory of Music from Beijing, including President Yu Feng and our distinguished soloists Yu Hongmei, Zhang Qiang, and Zhou Wang; to Ambassador Zhang Qiyue and the Chinese Consulate of New York; to the musicians of TŌN; to the many people who helped put this event together from Bard College, the Conservatory of Music, and the Fisher Center; and to the wonderful audience who came to our January 28th concert—thank you for helping us to celebrate the creation of this new institute. The concert was an inspiring manifestation of our mission and would not have been possible without the dedication of everyone involved.
