In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the Spurlock Museum is hosting a concert by local artists Ru Huang and Yarong Guan. The event will be May 28 at 2 PM in the Museum’s Knight Auditorium. The concert will include popular, jazz, and traditional tunes from East Asia, played on the erhu and piano, as well as improvisation of twentieth century Shanghai classics, such as Shanghai Nights, Rose Rose, I Love You, and The Love You Can’t Get. Also featured will be songs by Teresa Teng, called "Asia's eternal queen of pop." The musicians will share their stories of encountering the music.
