CMA Professors in Mongolia

Solungga Liu, Bill Mathis, and Charles Saenz visited the Inner Mongolia Normal University in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia (China) from October 3-10, 2012.  The week long residency included several master classes, private lessons and a chamber recital on the last evening.  The final event of the week was a panel discussion for music and non-music students and faculty at the University concerning Higher Education in the United States and study at BGSU in particular.

Professors Liu and Saenz taught a master class and performed a recital in Hohhot in the summer of 2010, resulting in this invitation to return for an extended visit.
