Event Details

Enjoy an evening of classical guitar music with Bowen Zheng. This concert will feature a captivating exploration of various themes, ranging from the exquisite romance encapsulated in “The Moon Represents My Heart” sung most famously by the Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng (鄧麗君) to the poignant depiction of Ophelia’s tragic demise in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, as portrayed musically by Australian composer Phillip Houghton. Through the medium of a classical guitar concert, the program takes audiences on a profound journey that contemplates the tragedy of death, the workings of fate and the grand beauties of life.
