Celebrating Bell Yung's Career

In celebration of Bell Yung’s 31 years of service at the University of Pittsburgh, the Department of Music has organized a series of events, including a reception on March 23 (by invitation only), a symposium on March 24, and a lecture-recital by Bell Yung on March 26. The symposium, with the title of “New Research in Asian and American Music,” will gather together Yung’s former students who have gone on to establish distinguished academic careers in the U.S. and elsewhere for a reunion. Along with Yung’s current students, they will report on their new research projects.

The lecture-recital is on the instrument qin, one of Yung’s research interests on which he has published two books, numerous articles, a compact disc, and a museum exhibition catalogue. Having lectured and performed on many university campuses and in several museums, he looks forward to sharing some of his thoughts and music with Pitt colleagues on this most venerated musical instrument of China.
