In case you didn't see (or ignored it along with all the other junk texts) the most recent SMS circular, an orange air pollution warning has been issued for December 2-4.
A bit of bad news for people who were coming to our Sunday Salon event, we're afraid. The ailing pianist and composer Wang Xiaohan has been rushed to the hospital, so his two students, part of the original programme, are now taking the evening alone. Pu Yaoyuan, aged 16, is a national competition winner and has played in Los Angeles’ Disney Concert Hall. Lujia Tang is 18, and has already awarded in national, pan-Asia, and international competitions. The complete programme includes Debussy, Bartok, and Chopin.
