Carlsbad Music Festival 11th Anniv. Benefit featuring Wu Man

WHAT: CMF 2014 Anniv. benefit featuring a performance by pipa player Wu Man
WHERE: The Village Terrace at the Carlsbad Inn
WHEN: Tuesday, February 4th starting at 7pm

The Carlsbad Music Festival announces its 2014 fundraising benefit to be held on Tuesday, February 4th at the Carlsbad Inn Village Terrace located in the heart of the Carlsbad Village steps from the beach. Tickets can be purchased at www.carlsbadmusicfestival.org for $75 each or a pair for $125.

Benefit guests will enjoy a catered reception, silent auction, and performance by Wu Man, world renown Chinese pipa player, Carlsbad resident and 2013 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year.

Recognized as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, Grammy Award nominated musician Wu Man has carved out a career as a composer, soloist, and educator giving her lute-like instrument – which has a history of two thousand years in China – a new role in both traditional and contemporary music. Through numerous trips to her native China, Wu Man has premiered hundreds of new works for the pipa, while spearheading multimedia projects to both preserve and create awareness of China’s ancient musical traditions. Her adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across artistic disciplines allowing Wu Man to reach wider audiences as she works to break through cultural and musical borders.

The proceeds of this event will benefit the CMF's 2014 activities including the 3-day Festival in September and the June 21 Village Music Walk. The Carlsbad Music Festival is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to bringing adventurous music to Carlsbad since 2004.
