Members of a string quartet of the Philadelphia Orchestra are visiting China to perform and teach, in a bid to deepen cultural ties, Chen Nan reports.

Four musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra will travel to China as a string quartet to perform chamber music concerts and take part in a series of coaching sessions and master classes.

Violinist Mei Ching Huang, associate principal second violin Paul Roby, violist Meng Wang, and principal cello Hai-Ye Ni-are visiting ShanghaiTech University from Monday to Wednesday and the China Conservatory of Music from Thursday to Saturday.

"The string quartet will travel to China for residency activities that further the orchestra's commitment to people-to-people exchange through music," says Matias Tarnopolsky, president and chief executive officer of the orchestra, in an email interview with China Daily.
