.: Recent recitals - Oct 2010

October saw Xuefei perform on three continents : Asia, Europe, and North America.  

In Asia, she performed three concerts in Shanghai, China with the Royal Irish Academy of Music Chamber Orchestra, and Shanghai Sinfonietta, including a concert at Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre.  During a few days back in the UK, Xuefei gave two solo recitals in Devon and Cornwall, as well as a masterclass for the Young Guitarists Foundation (of which she is now Patron), before moving on to Ipswich to play a concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Michael Seal.  She finished the month with a return visit to Westmoreland Church in Washington DC.  Here Xuefei gave the first  performance a guitar arrangment of a piece called "Tango Tomorrow" by Chinese composer Chien-Tai Chen.
