Chinese Imperial Bells Performance

Chinese Imperial Bells Performance
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Mt. St. Joseph University Theater

In the summer of 1978, archaeologists discovered a 2,400 year old tomb in China’s central Hubei Province. Among nearly 10,000 other relics, it contained a vast array of musical instruments. A fully intact set of 64 bianzhong-chime bells was the most prominent of the musical treasures. The ancient bells were delicately inlaid in gold with intricate dragons and inscriptions documenting a surprisingly sophisticated music theory for ancient orchestras over 2,000 years ago. These amazing findings ultimately inspired The Imperial Bells of China, a unique program of music and song revolving around the bianzhong-chime bells, created and performed by the Hubei Song and Dance Ensemble.

Celebrate the 40th anniversary Hubei/Ohio sister relation as the Hubei Song and Dance Ensemble plays painstakingly crafted reproductions of the imperial bells.

It is a significant move for the Chinese government to hold CIIE to give firm support to trade liberalization and economic globalization and actively open the Chinese market to the world.

The Chinese government sincerely welcomes government officials, business communities, exhibitors and professional purchasers across the world to participate in CIIE and to explore the Chinese market. We would like to work with all countries, regions and international organizations to make CIIE a world-class Expo, providing new channels for countries and regions to do business, strengthen cooperation and promote common prosperity of the world economy and trade.
