Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center presents an evening treat for cinephiles and music aficionados alike. Following Min Xiao-Fen’s acclaimed White Lotus, her score for the 1934 classic Chinese silent film The Goddess, she received a commission from the Smithsonian Institution to compose new original soundtracks for Romance of the Fruit Peddler and Romance of the Western Chamber, two historical Chinese silent films from the 1920s. These new scores will premiere on May 6, 2023. Ms. Min, known for her innovative approach to traditional music and her ability to seamlessly integrate diverse musical styles, will perform with master percussionist River Guerguerian, a renowned multi-percussionist and composer and a leading figure in classical, jazz and world music.
