Dining Room Tales arrives in Darlington for a very special performance with Chinese-Australian musician and composer Wang Zheng-Ting.
Originally from Shanghai, Ting is a master of the traditional Chinese instrument, the Sheng. Thought to be the inspiration for the western piano accordion, this 'Chinese mouth organ' is a true musical phoenix.
Join Ting for an evening of storytelling, magical music, and delicious food from Shanghai to Sichuan.
A very personal look at three decades building a new life of music in Australia.
'had the audience eating out of his hand, total control, they did not take their eyes off him.'

'unifying, edifying and delicious... a wonderful cultural experience merging east with west.”
