Mountain View Theater, a sleek and tranquil theater at the Sea World Culture and Arts Center, will embrace four musicians and their ensembles bringing the tonal and visual charms of traditional Chinese music. The artists will present concerts and relaxed meeting sessions to communicate with music fans.

Tsang Man-tung

Tsang Man-tung, a master of the Himalayan singing bowl from Hong Kong, will play tunes via striking bowls at a concert titled “Silence in the Woods.” Audience members will feel like entering the forest to listen to birds’ singing and connect with nature. The tunes are meditative and invite audience members to focus on inner strength. “Singing bowls have a very special frequency, different from other musical instruments, which seems to make time expand and slow down,” Tsang says.

Time: 8 p.m., Oct. 26
