Strings Of The World Concert Sunday

Although they are most commonly associated with the guitar or the violin, there are hundreds of types of stringed instruments played globally.
East Brunswick Public Library (2 Jean Walling Civic Center) hosts the special event “Strings of the World” on Sunday, December 9 at 2:00 pm, which will feature several unique stringed instruments.  

“This program is very exciting for us,” said Melissa Hozik, Adult Programming Librarian. “We serve a very diverse community, and the library is very happy to showcase performers and the music of different cultures. The concert features four musicians playing different instruments.”

Max Wei will play the er-hu, a bowed and two-stringed Chinese instrument. He has played it for more than 15 years, and is currently an er-hu instructor at the Mid-Jersey Chinese School and Princeton Chinese Language School.

The concert also features Jemmie Tsai, who will demonstrate the pipa, a pear-shaped Chinese stringed instrument. An active member of the Rutgers Sinfonia, she is also an accomplished violist with the Association of New Jersey Chinese School Youth Chinese Orchestra.

Harpist Bridget Knodel will also be performing. Currently in her fourth year at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Art studying under Andre Tarantiles, she is a member of the Rutgers Symphony Orchestra and the New Sussex Symphony.

The santoor—a trapezoid-shaped hammered string instrument from India—will be played by Deepal Chodhari. She graduated from North Indian Classical and earned the title of “sangeet visharad” under the tutelage of Smt. Shashikala Kaikini from Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan in India.

“Strings of the World” is free and open to the public. The concert is sponsored by the Friends of the East Brunswick Library. Information about upcoming programs at the library can be found online at www.ebpl.org.
