Project Description

Traditional Chinese Instruments

After Oakland Fund for the Arts (now AOK) helped fund the Chinese music class at Lincoln Elementary (Purple Bamboo Orchestra) from 1998-2000, many of the students graduated to Westlake Middle School.  To help the students continue their studies, as well as introduce new students to Chinese instruments, Oakland Fund for the Arts purchased 23 Chinese instruments for the Westlake music program in 2001.

The students studied and performed in the Westlake Chinese Instrument Orchestra.
