Many thanks to Professor Jian Feng Wang for arranging a visit to Guizhou Ethnic University in Guiyang on April 7 and 8, 2013.  The encounter included an impromptu singing and performance session with a crowd of students, and then an official concert.  Certainly the highlight of the concert was an interlude presentation by the students of a folk song in full regalia.  The university is in a beautiful setting in the wetlands bordered by sharply rising mountains on all sides.   Erhu faculty member Chen Jia and I collaborated on  良宵 by Liu Tian Hua刘天华。It is hard to explain the warm welcome I received from both students and faculty and I hope I can spend more time with them in the future.
