pipapipa Photo: Maltiase/Thinkstock Gao Hong can add Minneapolis’s Target Center to her lengthening résumé of American performance venues, which also includes Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. A senior lecturer in Chinese musical instruments at Carleton, Hong played the national anthem on a pipa (Chinese lute) at a Minnesota Timberwolves game in honor of Chinese New Year in January—a first for a U.S. professional sports game.

Watch her performance.
