Just a little over a year ago, Yan Lian was a student at South China Normal University, and Attila Dobak was studying singing in Italy. They might never have imaged that one day they would share the stage, singing a classic duet together. Famous for its world-class universities like Harvard and M.I.T., Boston is also becoming a magnet for talented young musicians and singers from around the world in recent years.
On Saturday, November 10, Soprano Yan Lian’s Boston debut concert was held at St. Paul’s Parish Church in Malden, Mass. About 200 people packed the historical church, and were in festival mood as the holiday season was just around the corner.
They enjoyed the classic Western songs as well as favorite Chinese folk songs, like the Jasmine folk song from Jiangshu province and the Dragon Boat folk song from Hubei province.
