Cho-Liang Lin named 2015 Artist-in-Residence at the Huntington

Cho-Liang Lin will join the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens as their Artist-in-Residence for 2015. The Taiwanese-American violinist will join the Huntington to help promote an understanding of Chinese culture through the visual and performing arts, following in the footsteps of the venue's inaugural visiting artist, pipa virtuoso Wu Man.

Lin will host a series of public events at the Huntington, placing Chinese music in a modern context and exploring how such music is expressed through and composed for Western instruments. Such events include a free public lecture and performance on April 9 with pianist Ayke Agus, and a May 1 concert that will also hear Wu Man. Lin will also work with students at the Esteban Torres High School in Los Angeles.
