On Easter Sunday, March 27, 2005, the NYQS gave a day-long
concert at the Rubin Museum. Four members played, while hundreds of visitors
came to listen for varying amounts of time.
Rubin Museum of Art is New York's newest museum. Opened on October 2nd, 2004, it
is the first museum in the Western World dedicated to the art of the Himalayas
and surrounding regions. The museum's mission is to establish, present, preserve
and document a permanent collection that reflects the vitality, complexity and
historical significance of Himalayan art. On the day of our performance, there
was a special exhibition on Chinese connections in Tibetan painting. The
exhibition illustrated this artistic interchange by juxtaposing paintings and
objects from China and Tibet of the 14th through 18th century, a period when
many important qin compositions were created.
