Trinity Laban hosts an Anglo-Chinese cultural exchange at Blackheath Halls, as Chinese flautist Lin Lin performs a programme that combines cultural elements of both Eastern and Western traditions on Thursday 14 May 2015.
A Musical Fusion of East and West will feature pieces derived from Chinese folk tunes, but played on a western flute, including the premiere of a concerto composed by fellow Trinity Laban student Sandy Clark. Lin Lin will be accompanied by Trinity Laban musicians and the UK Chinese Music Ensemble on traditional Chinese instruments, with Jonathan Tilbrook conducting.
Currently on the MFA research programme at Trinity Laban as a Trinity College London and Gladys Bratton scholar, Lin Lin has been described by Chinese Weekly Magazine as a “truly gifted musician…always bringing magical music to the audience.” She has performed across Asia, Europe and Australia and is a multi-award winning musician, including gaining first prize at the Beijing Young Musician International Flute Competition in 2001.
