A preview performance of East Meets West was conducted at the City of Shoreline Hall Lobby on Thursday afternoon.

Roger Nelson performed on the piano and Warren Chang played the erhu. The instrument, sometimes known as a Chinese fiddle, was introduced to China by the Xi people of Central Asia in the 10th century.

The erhu consists a vertical stick-like neck, at the top of which are two large tuning pegs, and the bottom is a small eight sided resonator body (sound box) which is covered with python skin.

The concerts are sponsored by the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Arts Council.
