As part of our celebration of ESEAN Heritage Month on Melodic Distraction, we invited Zi Lan Liao, from Pagoda Arts & Pagoda Youth Orchestra, to chat about the work they do in Liverpool.
Pagoda Arts is a community organisation that introduces Chinese Culture to a wide and diverse community, whilst it’s Youth Orchestra aims to be at the cutting edge of contemporary and classical Chinese and Western music. It has been a vital hub for Liverpool’s Chinese community for over 40 years.
Zi Lan Liao, Pagoda’s Chief Executive, is one of the leading exponents of Chinese music. Her busy career on the international concert circuit has resulted in her being the most widely heard and best appreciated performer on the Gu-Zheng worldwide.
