In 1981, Doris Lederer visited Mainland China in a ground-breaking tour as a member of the Audubon Quartet, the first American string quartet to be so honored. Performing and giving masterclasses in Beijing and Shanghai, Ms. Lederer helped open the door wider to other Western musicians worldwide. Since her first visit as an artist, teacher and cultural ambassador, Ms. Lederer has returned to China on subsequent visits, not only as an artist-teacher, but as a distinquished representative of Shenandoah University Conservatory.
