Teahouse Arts of China

Wednesday Mar 20, 2013 7:30 PM to 7:30 PM This is a past program

Co-presented by the UCLA Center for Chinese Studies, UCLA Confucius Institute, and the Department of Ethnomusicology, in partnership with the Confucius Institute at the University of Michigan

China’s teahouses have long been places where family and friends have gathered to sip tea, share ideas, and watch performances of local art forms. The Hammer recreates this tradition with an evening of tea, snacks, music, and storytelling, provided by master artists of the Beijing drum song tradition from Tianjin, China.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, the Simms/Mann Family Foundation, The Brotman Foundation of California, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and all Hammer members.
