Formed in the fall of 2008, the Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble (克里夫兰民族乐团) performs a wide variety of Chinese music on traditional string, wind, and percussion instruments. Vocalists Xue Yu and Sandra Emmeline, pipa/zhongruan soloist Yang Jin, and martial arts experts Shifu Gary Harris and Sifu Mark Lee Pringle, among others, have frequently performed with the ensemble as guest artists over the years.
The ensemble also regularly presents educational workshops on Chinese music for all ages, as well as multimedia performances exploring the intersections between Chinese music and other traditional art forms such as poetry, calligraphy, painting, tea ceremony, tai chi, and wushu (kung fu), and cross-cultural performances combining Chinese music with American folk music, Irish music, and Jewish music.
