Renwen Society Concert: Bubble Tea Fantasy

August 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Is it possible that the 3,000-year-old guqin and the very modern bubble tea can go together? Yes! The Qin performer and scholar Dr. Mingmei Yip has composed a piece to commemorate the divine taste of this drink. This modern qin composition, Bubble Tea Fantasy, is melodious and uses many new finger techniques. Perhaps the audience can even detect the different bubble tea flavors and imagine how it was made!

Please join us for this concert presenting several qin compositions, both old and new, including the traditional Three Variations of the Plum Blossom, which will be accompanied by a special flower arrangement. Six lucky attendees will enjoy a free tasting of bubble tea!

This event will be conducted in Mandarin Chinese

 

中国文人雅集的传统由来已久,最著名的莫如书法家王羲之在绍兴的兰亭雅集。纽约素泠琴社秉此传统,亦每两个月在不同地方办一次家居或外游雅集。雅集除了抚琴弹唱,也有品茗、书法、插花、论道等活动,每次均尽兴而归。

今年三月三号的雅集很特别,因为它促成叶明媚博士创作了“珍珠奶茶狂想”古琴曲。这次雅集在李婉婷家举行。除了传统琴曲如关山月、水仙、醉渔唱晚、流水、梅花三弄外,叶明媚和她的学生们还弹了现代琴曲春风及她编的琴歌沧海一声笑。她觉得传统与现代是需要同步进行的,却一不可。传统琴曲虽美,但是没有现代创作的琴曲,那么一、两百年后,可不是就没有“传统”琴曲可弹了?所以这十多年来,叶明媚一直尝试写新琴曲,有用传统或用现代手法写的, 目的是尝试种种不同的风格。

三月三号的雅集章明玥为大家带来了不同口味的珍珠奶茶,有抹茶、红豆、芋头、黑糖。当尝了各种不同口味后,叶明媚觉得这简直就是天上降下的甘露! 因为太好喝了。于是就有了写一首颂珍珠奶茶琴曲的想法。回家后在微信的moment发了关于这个想法的文,居然收到热烈的回应。于是那天晚上带着满腔热情就把初稿写出来了。但是后期的加工还是花了不少的时间。希望听众们都喜欢这首“珍珠奶茶”,并听出其中的不同味道与泡制方法!

这次的音乐会除了古琴弹奏 (传统与现代琴曲) 还有琴席的装置展览(琴诗书法、香道、花道)、插花表演,与免费品赏珍珠奶茶(六杯),请万勿错过!
