On April 1st, 2013 the University of Washington Wind Ensemble returned from a highly successful concert tour of Beijing, China. Six concerts were given in a variety of venues including a sold-out performance at the National Center for the Performing Arts located in Tiananmen Square that was broadcast nationwide on China Central Television. Video of that broadcast can be viewed here:

We are extremely grateful to Dr. Zhao-Rong Chen - professor of flute at the China Conservatory and alumni of the UW and the UWWE - for his hard work on our behalf. The UWWE is also thankful for the China Conservatory of Music and their wonderful hospitality. For more information about the trip, and numerous photos, see:
