Just saw the
movie 'Star Trek' and thought I heard Er Hu so I goggle er hu and
star trek and found you.
Keep up the great work.

were, especially my daughter, so impressed with your performance,
your presence, your down-to-earth personality, your genuine attitude
K & A
was a really inspiring recital, you worked that audience so beautifully
and with such charm.
on a wonderful performance this afternoon at Bower Museum! Your
music was beautiful and your lecture very educational and fun. I
had no idea that there are so many hu instruments.
Diego Int'l Music and Arts Festival Committee
to tell you that I have gotten so many compliments on your performance
that I wish I could have taped them for you to playback. Besides,
both men and women mentioned your beauty and presence on stage!
program was the highlight of the evening and we were so fortunate
to have you be a part of this year's Festival.
You are so amazing to watch! I can't believe all that music comes
out of two strings!
you had such an excellent performance at Kodak Theatre. Here are
a few pictures that I took for you during the concert.
Jan. 16, 2008
performance is particularly outstanding at the Kodak Theater last
night. I was thrilled. It is very kind of you to perform for the
so good to put a face -- and person -- to music I've heard and
really enjoy. Your playing is so expressive. Makes me want to
write music for the Er-Hu. I appreciate the soulful beauty you
bring out in your instrument. Keep up the good work.
music is harmonic to my soul.It express feelings above all human
nature.It is like waves awakening to water. Thank you.
music of Karen Han is absolutely wonderful and really expresses
deepest human feelings.
seminar/demonstration was great the other night. I really learned
a lot. Listened to one of the CD's so far. Really enjoying it.
What a lovely instrument the Erhu is.
a blessing. . . to hear you play last night (at the SCL's seminar).
Thank you for taking the time to share with us. You've got my
head and heart full of ideas!
I wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your presentation
at the SCL seminar. Also "The Golden Butterfly" CD is full of
variety of styles. It's not only great performance, but it's also
very educational for me to know what Er-hu can sound in many different
settings. My works appear in film, TV, and video games, and I
would love to bring your beautiful melody to my projects one day!
wanted to thank you for your presentation at AFI last night
for the SCL. How moving, beautiful and enlightening your presentation
was. I am not a composer, but came as the guest of a friend,
and I'm certainly glad that I got to see you perform.Your passion
and love for your music and your instrument is quite evident.
As "ambassador" for the Er Hu, you certainly showed its expressive
range, and deep, soulful intimacy.Thanks for sharing your talents
with the world.
It was a pleasure to be able to meet you at the SCL seminar
yesterday. Great performances! I also feel great that you have
made the Chinese people feel proud and I'm definately one of them.
Just a note to again thank you for a wonderful performance
at Cerritos with Hiroshima. As much as we like Hiroshima, it is
that much more beautiful when you are part of the program. Perhaps,
the next time you play with them, you can play the entire program.
Just a thought !!!. Of course we love Hiroshima too, but your
music is special.
You are so fabulous! The variation of the songs you played last
night at Doctors Day Celebration by Alhambra Hospital is also
superb. I love them all, especially the very first one and Celine
Dionss My heart will go on. Very touching and beautiful.
music. Great site. Thanks for being part of our project.
CDs are masterpieces, and the erhu is one of the few instruments
that really moves me.
was a pleasure meeting you at your concert on Feb. 4, 2006.
I confess that I had never heard of your instrument before.
The sounds you produced from the instrument were incredible.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching your play and loved your music.
saw you perform at the Norris Pavilion with David Benoit and
enjoyed your performance and being introduced to the erhu.
a past student of Ms. Han, I can attest to her patience, her
true love of the instrument - the erhu - and her effort in bringing
the beautiful sound of this instrument to the Western world.
Job!! Your performance feels totally different from the traditional
erhu. It is so passionated. I love it.
I've been learning erhu for two years now and I love your music!
your website, you look so beautiful! We are so proud of you!
You are really the Queen and the best. May you and your family
have a wonderful year of Dog!!
music is absolutely beautiful and I love the cultural sound and
love that you put into it.
have I heard a musical instrument that reaches in the soul of
a person. Humble and beautiful. Karen, hope you will someday visit
Canada (Ottawa to be specific) and share your wonder of music
saw your performance in Pittsburgh PA recently, it was excellent!
I doubt still if there is anything quite like the sound of erhu,
and how you express it so lovely in your unique way. Thanks again
for the great performance.
Qis musical talent is only surpassed by the beauty of her spirit.
really love your music and your energy.
52 years of living, an erhu fell onto my lap! I am a novice
erhu player in Kona, on the island of Hawaii who practices every
day, like any good kid. Your playing is a magnificent example
of erhu magic, I hope that fate allows me to meet you some day
concert! The mix of music was excellent and made for a beautiful
evening! Ive heard nothing but kudos from everyone that attended
