This is one of my favorite episodes of our local music series, outloud. It features a very skilled zheng player who came from China to teach at the FSU College of Music. Her husband, Nan Liu, is a painter. Like Haiqiong, he learned the traditional style in China. His artwork, and footage of his making Chinese calligraphy, add a great visual element to the program that already had the benefit of being shot in a garden at the beginning of spring when all the flowers were in bloom. Haiqiong's interview is very insightful to the cultural traditions to a nation that both captivates and concerns us. I think that all of these elements came together fairly well; we had a lot to work with and it was a great project to work on.
