CMC's Faculty Chamber Music Concert: Genghis KAHNcert

What would the world sound like if Genghis Khan had never been defeated? With its rich mix of people and cultures from East and West, it probably would look a lot like San Francisco. But would classical music sound radically different? Turns out, his sound-world isn’t too far beneath the surface of many classical and contemporary works. Once again, our faculty wowed us at their annual Faculty Chamber Music Concert.

A big thanks to faculty producer Katy Luo.
