    Hi everyone, I'm trying to come up with the name of a group I saw on a commerical before.

    It's an all Asian women group, I think 10 or more. They all play instruments - most noteably the violin. They may sing in a different language, but I'm not sure. In the commercial I saw, they were on a huge stage, like an ampatheatre and where wearing all white. It's like a classic style but more upbeat.

    If someone could please help, I'd appreciate it!

    No, not a fan, but from the description it seemed to fit. I think they played a concert or two here some time ago.

    Glad I could help.

    I think what you're referring to are the pi-pa (like a mandolin, but played upright), and the er-hu (sort-of like a violin with a bow drawn across strings, but also played upright resting in the lap, rather than on the shoulder like a violin).

    And no, I'm not a follower of classical Chinese music either, but you pick these things up after all, and in school there was a Chinese orchestra.
