Heart To Heart - Live Stream Concert: Gao Hong and Issam Rafea Duo

Join us for an afternoon of fun while enjoying soothing, sophisticated duets on Chinese and Arabic lutes, improvised by virtuosos Gao Hong on the pipa and Issam Rafea on the oud. The Duo won two Gold Medals from the Global Music Awards for their “From Our World to Yours” album in 2020. Artists will play and interact with the audience virtually.

The event will start with a short in-person presentation from Chih-Long Hu, Sandra G. Powell Endowed Professor of Piano, at the School of Music. Professor Hu will discuss the relationship between music and culture. 

Light refreshments will be provided.
