Ancient Paths, Modern Voices: A Festival Celebrating Chinese Culture

October 21–November 10, 2009


Ancient Paths, Modern Voices delved into the dynamic, multifaceted culture of China. Traditional ensembles—including some that had never before performed outside of China—and contemporary classical music composers and performers all played major roles in the 21-day festival.

Partner organizations highlighted Chinese dance, visual arts, and film, broadening the horizons of regular concertgoers and attracting new audiences, including members of the Chinese-American community. And for the first time, Carnegie Hall’s live festival programming reached audiences outside New York City when the Segerstrom Center for the Arts brought select Ancient Paths, Modern Voices events to Costa Mesa, California, for a similar festival presented by the Philharmonic Society of Orange County.
