Amid thunderous applause, an old man stepped unto the stage to receive an ovation from the audience at the end of the concert, held on the evening of June 30, 2017, at the concert hall of Sichuan Conservatory of Music (SCCM).
With the suggestion by professor Wang, SCCM established a national wind research and production center to further develop the double-chamber gourd Xun.
After the invention of the first generation of double-chamber gourd Xun, professor Wang improved the instrument and won the national invention patent again in 2015.
Now at the age of almost 80, Professor Wang spares no efforts to popularize the application of the Xun. The Houtu Xun Ensemble, consisting of over 20 students from the traditional Chinese department of SCCM, has been founded. The members show great enthusiasm in learning to play the old instrument. At the Xun concert, the Houtu Xun Ensemble played the instrument before the audience that crowded the concert hall.
Talking about future, professor Wang hoped to continue the improvement of the Xun. "As long as the instrument can bring real value to society, I believe it will be known to everyone around the world some day."
