San Diego, CA, August 1, 2018 – The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum (SDCHM), in collaboration with the San Diego Chinese Choral Society, is hosting a concert titled “A Bridge to Connect” on Saturday, August 11 at 3:00 p.m. at their event space at 541 Second Avenue. This concert will be the first off-site concert for students of the Bravo International Music Academy (BIMA), a two-week music immersion program hosted at San Diego State University for young musicians.

“The name of our concert, ‘A Bridge to Connect’, stems from our effort to connect students and masters, young talents to music lovers and the practice room to the concert stage,” said BIMA Executive Director Stanny Shiu. “I’m looking forward to this special collaboration between SDCHM and BIMA, as history and art coming together to make our hometown an even more special place to live and visit.”

Strings and piano students from around the world, from as far as China to as close as San Diego, come together for this intensive classical music academy where they can further develop their craft and perform for audiences.

“Part of the museum’s mission is to educate and inspire the community,” said SDCHM Board Chair Michael Yee. “This concert provides an excellent opportunity to do so with our patrons and members having the chance to meet young and extremely talented musicians and enjoy their performance.”
