WITH WANG ZHENG-TING
SATURDAY 28 MAY 5PM (DINNER)
NIRRANDA (3268, VIC)
Dining Room Tales takes a drive down the Great Ocean Road for a very special performance in Nirranda, with Chinese-Australian musician and composer Wang Zheng-Ting.
Originally from Shanghai, Ting is a master of the traditional Chinese instrument, the Sheng. Thought to be the inspiration for the western piano accordion, this 'Chinese mouth organ' is a true musical phoenix.
Join Ting for an evening of storytelling, magical music, and delicious food from Shanghai to Sichuan.
A very personal look at three decades building a new life of music in Australia.
