A Moving Sound

Midwest Trust Center Series 2022-2023
The Polsky Theatre
Friday, Mar 31, 2023 at 8:00 PM (CT)

Fusing traditional Taiwanese influences with a global sensibility, award-winning ensemble A Moving Sound (Sheng Don ??) built a world-wide following through their joyous mix of original music and dance.

Featuring the distinctive timbres of the erhu (fiddle) and zhong ruan (lute), and the transcendent vocals of Mia Hsieh, A Moving Sound has devised a unique and compelling style all their own – a Taiwanese whirlwind that veers between the meditative and the exuberant with irrepressible spirit. A Moving Sound has been featured on BBC Radio 3, NPR’s “All Things Considered” and The Discovery Channel.

A Moving Sound has performed at festivals, universities, art centers and museums in 23 countries throughout North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Central America and Asia. They have performed at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, WOMAD in England, WOMEX in Spain and The Kennedy Center, Grand Performances and Redcat Theater in Los Angeles, and Great Performances at Vanderbilt University. They have appeared at festivals such as the Melbourne International Arts Festival, Chicago World Music Festival and the respected Paleo Music Festival in Switzerland.

A Moving Sound designs residency programs specializing in Taiwanese culture, dance and music, which they have conducted for many universities and communities around the world, including a five-college consortium in Massachusetts.

A Moving Sound is co-directed by Mia Hsieh (vocals, dance) and Scott Prairie (zhong ruan, bass guitar). They are joined in the ensemble by Sho-u Ray (erhu), Chih-Ling Chen (zhong ruan) and Yu-Hsin Chen (percussion).
