Matthew Montfort and Shenshen Zhang at Old St. Hilary's
Guitar and Pipa Improvisations and Compositions

This collaboration between Matthew Montfort and Shenshen Zhang showcases the beautiful tone colors of the Chinese pipa and scalloped fretboard guitar in traditional and contemporary arrangements. The leader of the world music group Ancient Future, Matthew Montfort, an award-winning guitarist, is a pioneer of the scalloped fretboard guitar (an instrument combining qualities of the South Indian vina and the steel string guitar). Classically trained pipa virtuoso from Wenzhou, China, Shenshen Zhang has been recognized in Asia and America for her exquisite tonal qualities and delicate lyric interpretations. Using her expressive musical abilities to preserve the heritage of Chinese music, Shenshen is at the same time exploring the musical legacies of other cultures through her original compositions and improvisation through pipa.

Presented by: Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society with generous support from The Tiburon Heritage & Arts Commission and The Belvedere Land Company.
