CFAS’s Artistic Residency is designed to enhance each of our major programs by adding a fresh new element to elevate programming to ever higher levels. The key role for the Artist in Residence is to take the curatorial and performing lead for our Spring Concert Series including the All Chinese Music Concert, the cornerstone of our professional music programming. The Artist in Residence will bring a fresh perspective to the curatorial mix and ensure that our programming continues to be both cutting edge and diverse. Additionally, they will be highly involved with CFAS’s other events throughout the year, infusing their musical taste and knowledge to our programs and expanding the cultural reach of the organization.

Tarim Uygur Song and Dance brings to the United States its ancient songs of the Silk Road, the melodies of the Uygurs, the Kazaks, the Kirkiz; the rhythms of the Hui, the Uzbek, and Tatars. As you listen, close your eyes—the sounds will take you to the spice markets, deserts, and vineyards of western China, a land of vast contrast, scale, and history.
