Meet the Musicians – Ling Peng

Ling will be showing us more about the Chinese Erhu. Ling’s career in music began as a child prodigy at the age of seven, performing to thousands during the Cultural Revolution in China, and where her technical virtuosity won her a place at the prestigious Sichuan Conservatory of Music as their youngest ever student of the erhu. Ling founded and leads a Chinese folk ensemble: Chinese Whispers which has toured extensively in the UK for several years. Ling returned to China to source and preserve traditional Chinese folk music which she has arranged herself and introduced to the repertoire of her ensemble.
