Workshop members tour Gulangyu Island Final presentation by a participant

Beautiful Gulangyu Island is a short ride by
ferry boat from the workshop hotel. 
Participants and faculty explore, unwind,
visit the gardens and the piano museum,
and bargain for souvenirs.

After the hard work that goes into creating a final presentation, a lively interaction with the audience is a big plus.

Songs from the Philippines entertain the
workshop during the closing gala dinner.
Participants and faculty alike perform music
from their homelands during a mini-festival
of song.

Delicious meals - with an endless stream of dishes - are a memorable part of the Xiamen experience.
