Celebrate the Lunar New Year and take a journey through time with iconic pieces including ‘光明行’, ‘夜來香’, ‘孤戀花’, performed by award-winning “virtuoso” (New York Times) Andy Lin, on viola and erhu (Chinese violin). Pianist Kelly Lin, who collaborates regularly with Eric Whitacre, Xavier Foley and Denson Paul Pollard among others, joins her brother onstage for a concert showcasing the musical traditions of the ancient erhu in a dialogue between East and West.

Andy Lin has appeared on several film soundtracks and the debut album by his ensemble, the Amphion String Quartet, was selected by The New York Times as one of “The Best 25 Classical Music Recordings of 2015”. He is the only Juilliard graduate ever to concertize on both Eastern and Western instruments.

The Lin siblings have both played at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, as well as with ensembles and festivals around the world.

The 2020 Lunar New Year's Concert is presented by Rice University's Liu Distinguished Visitor Series, Chao Center for Asian Studies, and co-sponsored by Asia Society Texas Center.
